Target: U.S. Congress
Sponsored by: Consumers Union
Our nation's lax food safety system has deadly consequences. Nine people died in the recent tainted-peanut products outbreak, and countless others suffered terribly. We need Congress to pass strong food safety reform this year, before another deadly outbreak occurs.
Americans have suffered through unnecessary food contamination nightmares in recent years, including spinach, pet food and peppers. As the recent salmonella outbreak in peanut products revealed, the FDA rarely inspects U.S. food processing plants or tests for contaminants. And it does just as poor a job of inspecting imported food.
We need Congress to support real reform for a stronger food safety system! Send your message today and urge your member of Congress to support the Food Safety Enhancement Act now!
