No More Delays on Food Safety

    1. Sponsored by

      Consumers Union of United States

It's been one year since nine people died and hundreds more were horribly sickened by a salmonella outbreak in peanut products. Yet we still have the same, outdated federal foods safety laws on our books -- and the owners of the Georgia plant who produced the tainted peanuts still haven't been held accountable.

How many more months will pass, and how many more families will be at risk, before we get an effective food safety system?

It's time Washington makes the safety of our food a top priority. In July 2009 the House passed an FDA food safety reform bill, and late last fall a Senate health panel did too. The full Senate has yet to act -- no more delays!

Tell your Senators to bring the bill to the floor and pass it so we can start having faith in the food we eat each day.
