A shipping-industry watchdog group has warned FedEx to stop shipping millions of pounds of pork products to restaurants and other food service businesses as they become a source of high-pressure, high-risk freight.
The warning comes in the wake of an inspection of a FedEx truck that was involved in an April 26 explosion at a West Virginia shipping warehouse.
FedEx is the country’s largest FedEx trucking company, delivering more than 3 million trucks a day.
The company has been under scrutiny for shipping millions in pork products that were packed into the truck to restaurants, coffee shops and other restaurants that have been targeted by the explosive explosion.
The incident prompted President Donald Trump to issue an executive order banning all U.S. imports of pork, pork products and products containing pig parts.
Fedex has apologized for the explosion, saying it was an accident caused by an errant load of packaging.
But the company says the company is taking corrective action to ensure it doesn’t make mistakes again.
The National Pork Producers Council has criticized the trucking industry and the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization for not requiring companies to post safety data on their products.
It said FedEx should be required to post a tracking system, and that it should report the amount of pork that was shipped on its products to the U
