Our country's food safety system is in critical need of reform. Growing numbers of food recalls and dangerous outbreaks are putting us at risk. It is estimated that there are over 76 million new cases of foodborne illness in this country every year at a staggering cost of $152 billion.
The House of Representatives passed a bill in July 2009 that will make much needed progress, and now the Senate needs to act by passing S. 510, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. This bill was reported out of committee in November 2009 unanimously and has broad bipartisan support.
Let your Senators know they can't delay in bringing this to a full vote any longer.
