US: Trump administration eases inspection rules for egg products

In the latest update of inspection methods in five decades, the Donald Trump administration has announced to stop requiring U.S. plants that produce egg products to have full-time government inspectors.

Under the new rule, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will allow companies to use different food-safety procedures designed for their factories and equipment.

Now, inspectors would visit plants once per shift, instead of being there whenever egg products are being processed.
