The Nation : Meat Inspectors Indicted

Five U.S. Department of Agriculture meat inspectors, their former supervisor and a former packing plant manager were indicted in Newark, N.J., on charges of participating in a six-year bribery scheme to submit especially selected meat samples for federal analysis. U.S. Atty. Thomas Greelish said the inspectors at the Leo Keller Corp. were bribed to submit samples that contained less fat, water and additives than products the company sold to supermarkets.
