GMA Applauds U.S. House for Passage of Landmark Food Safety Bill
Date:7/30/2009

Calls on Senate to Follow Suit

WASHINGTON, July 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- GMA president and CEO Pamela G. Bailey today commended the members of the United States House of Representatives for passing H.R. 2749, The Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009. The bill passed the House by a vote of 283-142.

"House passage of The Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009 marks an important milestone," said Ms. Bailey. "This legislation will strengthen our nation's food safety net by placing prevention as the cornerstone of our nation's food safety strategy and providing FDA with the resources and authorities it needs to adequately fulfill its food safety mission. Combined with increased industry resources and vigilance, this legislation represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to modernize our food safety system and restore the public's faith in the safety and security of the food supply.

"We applaud the House for its vision and leadership in tackling this tough issue and urge the Senate to swiftly follow suit and pass its food safety bill as quickly as possible."

GMA supports many of the provisions of S. 510, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, authored by lead sponsors U.S. Senators Richard J. Durbin (D-IL) and Judd Gregg (R-NH) and co-sponsored by Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA), Richard Burr (R-NC), Christopher J. Dodd (D-CT), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), Roland Burris (D-IL), Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Tom Udall (D-NM), and will be working with HELP Committee Chairman Kennedy, Ranking Member Enzi and the entire committee in the coming weeks to develop and enact sensible, meaningful and timely food safety reform legislation.
