Tell your senators… we want better food safety, NOW

Standard


They will be discussing it on October 7th.  You and I both know how important this is!  The recalls are unbelievable, monthly!  Just for example, did you know:

  • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) checks only about one percent of imported food shipments;

  • Right now, the FDA only has the resources and authority to inspect food plants on average once every 10 years; and

  • Even when an outbreak is reported, the FDA does not currently have the authority to demand a mandatory recall of contaminated foods.

Scary, huh..?

It’s high time we made a change… by speaking out, we can achieve this, together!

and let your voices be heard!  If you write before October 3, a represenative will deliver your letter personally.
