Report Says FDA Food Safety Proposal Is Worth The Cost

Posted on January 14, 2013

Now that the Food and Drug Administration has introduced a proposal that would place new rules on food production, people from across the country have thrown in their two cents.  A new editorial in the Los Angeles Times takes a look at what they perceive to be an upcoming showdown over the new rules, and the author believes that the cost is worth the price in order to cut down on the 3,000 or so fatalities stemming from foodborne illness every year.  It’s hoped that lawmakers see the benefit in improving food safety mechanisms, such as increasing inspections to at least once every three years from the current once a decade approach.  The author points to the possibility of expense sharing between the food industry and taxpayers, something that it’s believed would cost the average family only $20 more a year, a small price to pay for food safety.
