From the Key Takeaways: " Meat-supply disruptions caused by the coronavirus have helped expose the federal barriers to the sale of meat.  The federal meat inspection system generally prohibits interstate sale of state-inspected meat and intrastate sale of custom-slaughtered meat.  Congress should remove these barriers to give farmers and consumers more options and mitigate potential meat-supply shortages if there is a second wave of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]."
