Food Safety Advocates Urge Companies to Oppose “Filthy Food Act”

The nation’s leading consumer and food safety organizations are urging 11 of the country’s biggest food manufacturers, retailers, and restaurant chains to oppose the Regulatory Accountability Act, which the groups say would effectively block any new regulations improving food safety. The bill passed the House in January and could be voted on by the Senate as early as May. But food safety experts say that the legislation, which would require officials at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Food and Drug Administration, and other agencies to seek out the least costly, and not the most beneficial, regulatory approaches to food safety problems, would more accurately be called the “Filthy Food Act.”
