Are You Eating Safe Food?
This week on Eating Matters, host Kim Kessler is leading a discussion on food safety with guests Denis Stearns, Alli Condra, Margot Pollans, and Brian Snyder. Opening the show speaking with Denis regarding his law practice experience seeing more and more food safety cases, the conversation turns to the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) which was signed into law by President Obama on January 4, 2011. It aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus of federal regulators from responding to contamination to preventing it. The group discusses if the bill and implications and also if it has been successful before turning to issues concerning small farmers and those advocating for the small farmers across the country.
