CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming Republican Sens. Mike Enzi and John Barrasso are among 30 U.S. senators questioning a government advisory committee’s proposed dietary guidelines.

The proposed guidelines recommend people eat less red and processed meat and relegates the health benefits of lean meat to a footnote to the main recommendations.

The senators are calling on the USDA and Department of Health and Human Services to take a longer and more intense look at the committee’s advice.

They also want an extension of the 45-day comment period to ensure stakeholders have enough time to review and comment on the recommendations.
