The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is responsible for ensuring that U.S. meat and poultry products offered to consumers are safe, wholesome, unadulterated, and properly labeled. In fulfilling these responsibilities, the agency’s laboratories perform microbiological analysis of meat products, including investigations for foreign materials in the likes of metals, wood, and glass.
Prevention of this type of contamination begins on the farm or ranch where the livestock are raised. Producers of livestock have implemented their own safeguards to assure foreign materials do not enter the meat supply.
