Johns Hopkins Analysis Finds Little Advancement Addressing Food System Concerns

Five years after the Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production (PCIFAP) released its landmark recommendations to remedy the public health, environment, animal welfare, and rural community problems caused by industrial food animal production, a new analysis by Johns Hopkins University Center for a Livable Future (CLF) finds that the Administration and Congress have acted “regressively” in policymaking on industrial food animal system issues. The original report, “Putting Meat on the Table: Industrial Farm Animal Production in America”, was released in April 2008 and detailed myriad problems caused by the present industrial food animal production model. CLF began its analysis, “Industrial Food Animal Production in America: Examining the Impact of the Pew Commission’s Priority Recommendations”, late last year.
