Food Safety

I have consistently worked to make safe food a guarantee for all families.  I am continuing to monitor implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act, which I supported in the 111th Congress and which brought the most significant reforms to our food safety laws since FDR was president.  The law will help the FDA more effectively track tainted foods, better-screen imported foods, improve recall information for consumers, and speed up response time to food safety threats.
