FSIS Extends Implementation Date to Hold Truckers, Others Responsible for Inhumane Treatment at Plants: The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) delayed the implementation date for a new policy, Inhumane Handling of Livestock in Connection with Slaughter by Persons Not Employed by the Official Establishment, which would hold livestock owners, transporters, haulers and other persons not employed by the official establishment liable when involved in inhumane treatment of livestock on the official establishment’s premises. The policy, which was set to take effect January 24, 2017, will be delayed until FSIS completes a review of the comments it received. FSIS will then publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing a new implementation date and responding to the issues raised in the comments.
