Food Safety Not Important Enough For Congress To Fund?

Recalls, legal expenses and lost sales resulting from foodborne pathogens cost food manufacturers billions of dollars each year. In addition, foodborne illness is estimated to cost the country about $152bn a year in medical costs and lost productivity.

About one in six Americans becomes sick as a result of foodborne illness each year, according to figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and 3,000 die.

Yet the Congress may withhold the 1.4bn needed to implement Obama’s new Food Safety Bill!

You’ve gotta be kidding!!
