Source of Contaminated Tomatoes Still Unknown: FDA
Date:6/13/2008

se actions on Thursday:

  • U.S. lawmakers voted to subpoena nine companies that are responsible for analyzing the most dangerous foods entering the country. The House of Representatives' Energy and Commerce subcommittee has been investigating for months the possibility that government import alerts were being circumvented. Potentially dangerous foods from abroad can only enter the marketplace after a laboratory has determined they are safe, according to FDA rules. But the investigators have been told that it is a routine practice for private labs to test food until a clean result is obtained, the Associated Press reported.
  • Congressional investigators said the FDA has failed to meet its own stated goals of protecting the nation's food supply.

    The investigators for the Government Accountability Office were scheduled to tell the House Energy and Commerce Committee that the FDA has done little to implement its "food protection plan," a risk-based inspection system of food plants, which the agency released in November, The New York Times reported.

  • A poll released by the Harvard School of Public Health found that, despite the number of food safety incidents in recent years, most Americans are confident that the food produced in the United States is safe. However, many have concerns about the safety of imported food produced in some other countries.
