Laws are a waste of time. You don't eat your neighbor, not because it's against the law; but, because it's gross. California's Prop 2 is absurd folly.
The four primary requirements of the Meat Inspection Act of 1906 were:
Mandatory inspection of livestock before slaughter (cattle, sheep, goats, equines, swine, chickens);
Mandatory postmortem inspection of every carcass;
Sanitary standards established for slaughterhouses and meat processing plants;
Authorized U.S. Department of Agriculture ongoing monitoring and inspection of slaughter and processing operations.
After 1906, many additional laws to further standardize the meat industry and the USDA's methods of inspection were passed.
They are still ignoring laws passed in 1906.
