Most widely held works by Geoffrey S Becker
Country-of-origin labeling for foods : current law and proposed changes by Geoffrey S Becker( Book )

30 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2002 farm bill (10816 of P.L. 107-171) required retailers to provide country-of- origin labeling for fresh produce, red meats, peanuts, and seafood by September 30, 2004. However, Congress has twice postponed implementation for all but seafood; COOL now must be implemented by September 30, 2008. Some in Congress still strongly support mandatory COOL and want it implemented as soon as possible. Others counter that COOL should be voluntary. The program could again be at issue when the 110th Congress takes up a 2007 farm bill. This report will be updated if events warrant

It is far from clear whether adequate measures are being taken in America to protect the people from this terrifying disease. The major problem is a tug-of-war between the desires of the meat processors to maximize profits and the people to be protected. The USDA has so far maintained a solid record which may be tested in the near future

Humane treatment of farm animals : overview and selected issues by Geoffrey S Becker( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Animal protection activists in the United States have long sought legislation to modify or curtail some practices considered by U.S. agriculture to be both acceptable and necessary to animal health. Some Members of Congress over the years have offered various bills that would affect animal care on the farm, during transport, or at slaughter. The House and Senate Agriculture Committees from time to time have held hearings on farm animal welfare issues, but their members generally express a preference for voluntary rather than regulatory approaches to humane methods of care

Animal identification and meat traceability by Geoffrey S Becker( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Animal identification (ID) refers to marking individual or groups of farm animals so that they can be tracked from birth to slaughter. Animal ID is one segment of meat traceability, generally the tracking of identifiable products through the entire marketing chain to the ultimate consumer. Animal ID and meat traceability have been suggested as potentially useful tools in animal health, food safety, quality assurance, or country-of-origin labeling programs. Animal ID bills introduced in the 109th Congress include H.R. 1254, the National Farm Animal Identification and Records Act, H.R. 1256, to limit animal ID information disclosure, and H.R. 3170, creating a private Livestock Identification Board to oversee the program. This report will be updated if events warrant." p. 2
Mad cow disease and U.S. beef trade by Charles Hanrahan( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 110th Congress is expected to monitor closely U.S. efforts to regain foreign markets that banned U.S. beef when a cow in Washington state tested positive for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, or mad cow disease) in December 2003. Rebuilding foreign confidence in the safety of U.S. beef and cattle has been impeded by two other confirmed U.S. cases of BSE, announced June 2005 and March 2006. The four major U.S. beef export markets, Canada, Mexico, Japan, and Korea, are again accepting U.S. product. Resumption of beef trade with Japan and Korea has not gone smoothly. Japan temporarily suspended all U.S. exports when prohibited materials were discovered in a shipment, but trade has now resumed. Korea rejected some shipments with bone fragments, but has not prohibited all export trade. This report will be updated.1"--Page 1

Meat and poultry inspection : background and selected issues by Geoffrey S Becker( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA's) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) must inspect most meat, poultry, and processed egg products for safety, wholesomeness, and labeling. Federal inspectors or their state counterparts are present at all times in virtually all slaughter plants and for at least part of each day in establishments that further process meat and poultry products. Debate has ensued for decades over whether this system, designed in the early 1900s, has kept pace with changes in the food production and marketing industries
