Industry must really want the Food Safety Modernization Act (S 510). It was dead, dead, dead – the clock had run out, and considering the gridlock in Washington and the fact that Tom Colburn (R-OK) had promised he would personally filibuster this bill, there was no way that was going to change.
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (S.510) passed the Senate yesterday 73-25. The House passed their version this past summer. What now?
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (S.510) is sitting in the Senate right now. It’s already passed the House and with the giant egg recall, the risk of typhoid in ice pops, and a deli meat recall at Walmart involving 1.5 million ready-to-eat sandwiches, now would be a good time to get this one passed.
