Valley Meat Statement Regarding USDA issuance of Grant
Today Valley Meat Company received its Grant of Inspection from USDA FSIS to process equine animals at its Roswell facility. Valley Meat Company is encouraged that after well over a year of delay that the process has finally reached completion. Valley will now begin final preparation to hire 40 to 100 employees over the coming weeks and months so that they may go to work providing a humanely harvested, safe, legally compliant product to the world markets. Valley looks forward to working cooperatively with USDA FSIS to ensure that all applicable laws and regulations are followed. While a Grant of Inspection has been issued, it is important to note that this does not fully resolve the pending litigation with USDA and given the unjustifiable failures of USDA to comply with law for a period extending well over 14 months, Valley intends to continue to pursue the case in controversy with regard to holding USDA accountable for its unacceptable politically motivated behavior.
