Consumers Union Urges Quick Senate Passage Of Food Safety Bill

August 23, 2010: 12:46 PM EST
With the recall of salmonella-contaminated eggs now totaling more than half a billion, Consumers Union, the publisher of Consumer Reports magazine, is urging the U.S. Senate to pass S. 510, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, when it reconvenes on September 13. The pending Senate bill would give FDA authority to order a recall in the event that a company did not voluntarily recall tainted products, and would improve procedures for tracing tainted food back to its source. The FDA has said new food safety standards, including inspection requirements, for egg producing facilities that were under development for several years and went into effect last month could have prevented the outbreak.
