[rabbitmq-discuss] Database lag and delayed processing of messages

Is there anyway I could configure an exchange/queue/consumer to 
route/deliver/consume a message in the future?

For example we have run into a situation whereas we produce a message 
for a record that was just inserted into our master database. When our 
consumer tries to act upon this message the record has not be replicated 
to the slaves yet so the message consumption fails. Is there any way we 
can queue up this message in say 5 seconds? Of course we could always 
requeue a failed consumed message but that would lead us to a situation 
where the we could be consume/producing in an infinite loop. How do 
people typically handle this situation?
