No Time to Repeal Food Safety Laws

Statement of CSPI Senior Food Safety Attorney David Plunkett


Ensuring the safety of the food we eat is about as basic a function of government as you can get.

Perhaps there are areas in which government may overreach, but having basic standards for farm and food safety is not one of those areas. The bipartisan Food Safety Modernization Act promises a stronger food safety system.  We shouldn’t consider turning back to the dark days of no standards and largely uninspected food.
