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.
