Excerpts from the Paper
In the past year alone, the U.S. has seen recalls of almost 4,000 food and beverage items, widely ranging from spinach and tomatoes to peanuts and milk products. The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a bill, the Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009 (H.R.2749), designed to improve the safety of food in the global market. If signed, H.R. 2749 would increase the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) authority in food production inspections, new enforcement development measures and food recall tracking. H.R.2749 is currently with the Senate. Either this or a similar bill, S.510, sponsored by Senator Durbin, five Republican senators and five Democratic senators, will be used as a starting point for the Senate’s version of the bill. The Senate is expected to pass its version by late December 2009.
