Frederick K. Ray
 
 

Meat inspection and grading are those activities related to meat products that are important in as­suring the best product in the world for the consumer. The purpose of this fact sheet is to provide information on meat inspection and grading.

 

Meat inspection assures the consumer that the meat and poultry products are clean, safe, and wholesome for human consumption at the time of purchase. This involves inspection of the live animal, carcass, internal organs, plant facilities, equipment, personnel, and transportation system.
