USDA to publish salmonella statuses of poultry farms

salmonella statuses of poultry plants online.
"Our inclination is to get information out before the consumer hears it
from somebody else," said Conner, comparing the importance of disseminating such
information to that of notifying the public of an outbreak of avian influenza or
bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
"It's been our experience that when dealing with news to consumersâ€¦we need
to get it out fully and quickly," he added.
