Headline: ?Inspectors warn unsafe pork could make its way to consumers under Trump rule change ?

In traditional plants, as many as seven federal inspectors work on the processing line, handling hog carcasses and checking for defects.

Under the new system, that number will be reduced to two or three federal inspectors who have more experience but who will have limited hands-on interaction with the carcasses.

Potential defects, according to Mauer, include feces, sex organs, toenails, bladders and unwanted hair.
