Shutdown not impacting food safety inspections at local farms

The Food and Drug Administration is looking to bring more food safety staff back to work without pay.  That won't impact local farms or food processors.  Food safety inspections at such facilities are handled by staff from Wisconsin's Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.  So Kewaunee County Agriculture Agent Aerica Bjurstrom says it's business as usual.


If more FDA food safety workers are called back to work they won't be paid until after the shutdown, just like Coast Guard personnel and TSA staff.
