I loved the blog post still.

By: Anonymous Fri, 17 Apr 2009 23:32:01 +0000 I had some tomatoes we shipped to Hunts Point inspected, where the inspector scored sunburn on the certificate. After seeing these pictures, and seeing what is allowed, I have to question if the USDA inspector was scoring the defect correctly. No way the tomatoes were showing that much sunburn over the shoulders. Too late now, but I will be watching future inspections. Thanks.

She ain’t what she used to be. It is what
it is. The major decline in inspection request
has been occuring for several years. As was
reported in an article from a “cuts
of the destination inspection service because
user fees have not kept pace with expenses.”
That is a partial quote from AMS officials as
stated in the article. If what the AMS officials
claim in the article is not accurate, then who
can inspectors and industry representatives
believe? Just out of respect for the AMS
officials, one should believe that they, if anyone,
must know what the future is for the FPB.
That said, I’ll let the quote speak for itself.

She ain’t what she used to be. It is what
it is .. a confused clueless mess.

By: Dog Bonz Fri, 17 Apr 2009 00:10:46 +0000 Peppers, you know the answer to your own question…..they are too busy shutting down offices and raising inspection fees to worry about doing something helpful to the industry. How times have changed, the USDA used to be a valuable service. What has happened during the past few years?

fresh product branch inspectors to find
helpful information and exchange thoughts
about their profession via the internet.
Wonder why the fresh products branch
hasn’t thought about doing the same
thing? Keep up the good work!!!
