Consumer Safety Inspector
Consumer Safety Inspectors work in one or more privately owned meat, poultry and egg processing plants. They ensure that the establishment's Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (SSOP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Plans meet regulatory requirements. In addition, they conduct regulatory oversight activities inside the plants in matters relating to other areas of consumer protection, e.g., misbranding. Consumer Safety Inspectors play a vital role in protecting the public's health.
