Ever see a monkey cleaning another’s hair? I for one would concur that a monkey could and would do a better job than the average government inspection procedure.
For those who do not understand how such things work, please allow me to indulge myself. You see, after the recent salmonella problem here in Georgia and Texas, I was not at all surprised that something like this happened.
Here is out it works. In my situation, they come out once a year, to “inspect” the apartments where I live. That was supposed to have happened here this past week.
They let management know ahead of time when they are coming out. Then management sometimes let the “tenants” know the day prior that they will be entering units “at random”.
Management, of course, is then in a tizzy rushing around trying to make sure that the outside of the units are presentable, especially. They usually know from past experience what to expect.
The USDA Inspector has not entered my place one time, of all the past 5 years I have been here. They usually go into the one or two units every single time and the same ones every year. As for this year I do not know about the others aside my own from being asleep at the time. Yes I would know had they entered – just ask my brother who was here.
To top it off, the Inspection agency has an office next town, over which is where they come from, as far as I understand. This means that the owners/management probably know them quite well.
Perhaps now you’re beginning to understand how such things can happen with the peanut butter recalls. First and foremost the government is making a huge mistake in notifying others when they will be there. Next they send folks who probably know each other very well.
In conclusion, it is usually a matter for the owners of the location, whatever the business may be, if they care about what they do. They would then, of course, strive at all times to do the best they can to maintain quality, regardless of inspectors. This overview will conclude that the government is as much at fault as those who make own, manage, or work at individual locations.
