Food Safety Regulations

Do you think the FDA needs to implement tighter security regulations to food manufacturers? According to this HuffPost article by Joe Satran, "Food Safety Modernization Act Testing Requirement Axed In White House Review," the FDA's most recent food safety proposal was forced to eliminate obligatory microbiological testing.

Satran explains, "As food politics guru Marion Nestle pointed out in a blog post about the changes, it's not too late for the FDA to add a testing requirement to the regulations before they're finalized. The agency is accepting public comments on the regulations until May 15, so if you want them to require food manufacturers to test their facilities and products for pathogens, speak up soon."
