Egg Victims Demand Action
Tired of hearing about eggs? We're finally getting to the good part. After a recall of 500 million eggs due to a salmonella outbreak, food safety advocates and outbreak survivors are calling for the Senate to pass legislation that has been sitting around since July of 2009. That's right, over a year ago the House passed reform legislation for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). CNN reports that the bill includes "better preventive control measures by manufacturers, more frequent inspections of facilities, and greater FDA authority over recalls."
