I think that it would be a very good idea to save a portion of the sale of all meat products to finance extra manpower in the slaughterhouses. This would significantly reduce the eventual threat of food borne illness outbreaks that result from meat that becomes contaminated by harmful bacteria such as e. Coli or salmonella. Those with compromised immune systems, such as children or older adults, are considered to be most vulnerable and account for most food borne illness fatalities.
This manpower increase can include more inspectors of meat products way before they enter the supermarkets or restaurants. They must also be able to turn a blind eye to anyone who wishes to try to bribe them to accept contaminated meat.
