The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) has been asked by Congress to examine the
challenges FSIS faces in inspecting and enforcing humane livestock handling laws and regulations.
As part of our study, GAO is surveying a random, nationwide sample of Inspectors in Charge at establishments
that conduct slaughter. You have been randomly selected to participate, and results will help inform
Congress about the challenges that inspectors face as well as potential solutions.
