Maine had a meat inspection program from 1967-81, when it was abolished by the Maine Legislature. Meat packaged and sold in Maine must be inspected at one of the state's seven federal facilities, but the inspection station in Albion is the only one that inspects poultry. The Maine Legislature last year passed a bill that charged the commissioner of the Maine Department of Agriculture with forming a commission to study how to bring back state inspection. Some farmers have stopped raising livestock because of the difficulty involved in having their product inspected, and proponents of a state inspection program say it would be geared more toward custom processors than the federal inspection program.
