USDA Explains Recent Meatless Monday Snafu

After removing the Meatless Monday posting in late July, the USDA reveals how the posting happened in the first place.

After the US Department of Agriculture’s newsletter promoting Meatless Monday was made public in July, all content promoting the danger of meat-intake was pulled. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack personally apologized to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and revealed that the Meatless Monday backing was a mistake and never approved by authorities. Vislack has recently revealed that this accident happened because two engineers responsible for making the organization “greener” became overzealous and decided to promote Meatless Monday even though the endorsement was never approved. In June, before the USDA Meatless Monday confusion took place, the Union of Concerned Scientists issued a report finding beef production to be the culprit for massive deforestation and methane emission.
