Poultry processing lines will not be getting any faster, as the U.S. Department of Agriculture has rejected a request to increase speeds at processing plants. In May, U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, R-Gainesville, sent a letter to Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, a former governor of Georgia, requesting the USDA allow poultry processors to hasten early stages of processing. On Tuesday, Collins said that request had been rejected.
