To the list,


Nine people are dead because of a filthy peanut plant in Georgia. A
proposal to let the FDA concentrate on drugs and remove food to a
separate agency might prevent future food-borne disease outbreaks.



To read today's story in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the
investigation,  put "peanuts salmonella Atlanta" into
Google.

Every operation serving or selling food needs to have a food safety
system in place that is designed specifically to guarantee the food being
served is safe to eat. This specific food safety system is called HACCP
for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point. HACCP is a system
comprised of 7 principles that are to be applied to a written food safety
program focusing on the food in your operation. 

(snip)

 This bill wants to establish the Food Safety Administration within
the Department of Health and Human Services to protect the public health
by preventing food-borne illness, ensuring the safety of food, improving
research on contaminants leading to food-borne illness, and improving
security of food from intentional contamination, and for other
purposes.  It will be the Food Safety Administration that will
inforce HACCP requirements.

 The government is simply going to remove any of these
responsibilities from the USDA and give them to the FSA.  Not more
government......simply a division of government.

Take a look at this bill




http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h111-875
It looks like it is more privacy invasion as the government under the
guise of food safety wants to register every "food
establishment" (which looks like it includes anyone who produces any
food on their property).  
If you find it very disturbing as I did, here's the link to write
your Congressional rep and tell them so
