Comments Off on US Senate Passes Biggest Food Safety Bill Overhaul Since 30s

The US Senate has approved the biggest overhaul to the United States’ food safety laws since the 1930s. The new food safety bill, which passed 73 to 25 votes, will empower the Food and Drug Administration to place new responsibilities on farmers and food companies in order to prevent contamination as well as set safety standards for imported foods, and comes as the United States has seen a host of food poisoning outbreaks linked to a wide range of products including eggs, peanuts and spinach. Such cases saw thousands made ill with over a dozen killed, and one high profile instance even saw  a woman die after eating peanut butter because it was contaminated with Salmonella. It is no surprise that such a concern bridged any bi-partisan disputes, leading to the bill being passed by such a huge margin.
