Meat industry squeals at thought of FDA oversight
Leggo of our CAFO!: Big Meat is less than pleased with the food safety bill currently moving through Congress, summarizes Tom Laskawy. Despite the facts that food safety breaches — and voluntary, useless after-the-fact recalls — are still common, the industry thinks the proposed new fees are too high, and the government shouldn't have mandatory recall power, and inspecting farms and livestock operations is unnecessary. But what really freaks them out is that a more powerful FDA might get regulatory authority over the industry, versus the currently toothless USDA. (Grist)
