Rise in Contaminated Foods Gives FDA an Opportunity

Comments Off

Both trade groups want the FDA to more closely monitor and regulate foods coming in from other countries, citing the fact that food preparation processes in foreign countries are often unknown and sometimes suspect. The FDA has responded by saying it may ask Congress for more funding to implement a prevention control program to restore consumer confidence.
