Does the government have a responsibility for protecting the food supply in America? I think in the wake of recent outbreaks of food illnesses, we can see what happens when the food supply is not safe. And self-regulation, while is sounds great on paper, doesn’t seem to be doing the trick.
“We already know what they’ve done to US vets and with this most recent outbreak of food illness related to the American kids staple peanut butter, it has become painfully obvious that GOP cuts continue to risk the lives of millions of Americans.
The federal agency thatâ€™s been front and center in warning the public about tainted spinach and contaminated peanut butter is conducting just half the food safety inspections it did three years ago.”
