Obama’s Food, Health Officials Report Progress In Campaign To Ensure Food Safety

July 9, 2010: 12:22 PM EST
Top Obama Administration agriculture and health officials report progress among the various federal food safety agencies in their efforts to implement the President’s food safety initiatives. The Food Safety Working Group had recommended a public health-focused approach to food safety grounded in prioritizing prevention, strengthening inspection and enforcement, and improving response and recovery. The USDA, for example, has issued draft standards and guidance on salmonella in poultry and eggs and produce safety. It has also begun a verification testing program for beef bench trim and has issued draft guidelines on ways to control E. coli on the farm. The Health and Human Services Dept. has launched a Web portal where industry and public health officials can report that a food might be harmful to health.
