Christine Ferguson of NSI: “Food Safety Plans Could Help States”

The Obama Administration’s plans to upgrade the food safety system could bring welcome relief to local and state agencies who have struggled to prevent food illness outbreaks amid bureaucracy as well as limited resources and federal leadership.  Plans include a new, public health-focused approach to food safety based on three core principles: prioritizing prevention; strengthening surveillance and enforcement; and improving response and recovery, according to a Health and Human Services press release. They are based on key findings of the Food Safety Working Group, which were announced recently. The group was created by President Obama in March to advise the Administration on food safety system upgrades.
