    Duh !!! Shouldn’t the meats and all produce be checked BEFORE it is sent to stores, restaurants, etc. ??? Once these food items get to the public, they are usually bought and consumed. It’s like shutting the barn door after the Horse has gotten out.

    Send it to Mexico as a thank you gift for all the wonderful things they have done for the USA.
