Trust for America's Health Applauds President Obama's Call for a Complete Review of the U.S. Food Safety System
Date:2/2/2009

etables and 75 percent of seafood consumed in the U.S. is imported; and
  • States and localities are not required to meet uniform national standards for food safety.
  • TFAH calls for a series of actions to modernize the nation's food safety system by using strategic inspection practices and state-of-the-art surveillance. Key recommendations include:

    • Establishing strong leadership for food safety within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and a clear chain-of-command;
    • Repealing outdated end-product and processing plant inspection mandates and shift the emphasis of inspection practices to the prevention of outbreaks and illnesses through the entire food production process and supply chain;
    • Creating mechanisms that allow inspection practices to keep pace with changes in the industry;
    • Establishing uniform performance standards and best practices that are enforceable through actions including detention and recall authority and civil penalty authority;
    • Requiring food safety education for commercial food handlers;
    • Improving monitoring of foreign imports and international practices;
    • Creating uniform standards and practices across federal, state, and local levels; and
    • Strengthening the FDA with increased funding and aligning resources with high risk threats.

    Trust for America's Health is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to saving lives by protecting the health of every community and working to make disease prevention a national priority.
