“With a focus on prevention, the food and beverage industry is committed to partnering with Congress, the Obama Administration and the FDA to strengthen and modernize our nation’s food safety system,” said GMA President and CEO Pam Bailey. “The Food and Drug Administration must be given better tools and more authority to prevent contamination of the nation's food supplies if we are to maintain our position of global leadership and assure consumer confidence.”
Specifically GMA and its allies urged Congress to: require food safety plans; require foreign supplier safety plans and build foreign capacity; ensure the safety of fruits and vegetables; adopt a risk-based approach to inspections; and authorize mandatory recalls.
