Food industry wants stronger FDA?
Food safety must be becoming a huge problem for the food industry. A group of ten food trade associations, one of them the Grocery Manufacturers of America, is calling on Congress to give the FDA the resources and power to impose stronger food safety regulations. Really? Have food companies finally figured out that a strong FDA would be good for business (consumer confidence, level playing field)? Or are they thinking that this will give them the chance to write the regulations?
