This is something that I haven't really followed, but it caught my eye as I was reading the NY Times this morning. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/01/health/policy/01food.html?_r=1&hp
The US Senate has passed its version of a bill that would increase the power of the FDA to recall foods and ramp up inspections. On the surface, this seems like a logical change: increase food safety, especially after recent salmonella outbreaks. However, I wonder what this potential overhaul would do to food costs in the US, and abroad.
Anyone have further insight or an opinion on the matter?
