Tired of listening to the next food that has been tainted with a bacterial infection and sickened thousands of people?
Hopefully that will come to an end soon. The Senate recently passed a bill for a major overhaul of the safety of our nations’ foods. This means the FDA would start inspecting foods before they enter this country and before they reach markets and restaurants. The FDA has primarily been focused on medical products as opposed to ensuring the safety of our foods.
As Erik Olson, deputy director of the Pew Health Group, an advocacy organization said, “This is a historic moment, for the first time in over 70 years, the Senate has approved an overhaul of FDA’s food safety law that will help ensure that the food we put on our kitchen tables will be safer.”
All I have to say is…..it’s about time!
