The USG prays at the altar of deregulation and once again the disastrous results of these failed policies are laid bare for all to see.
The USG must be forced to revise its trade and regulatory policies as the policies followed during the past ten years or so have proven to be dismal failures.

When money is on the table ethics go out the window.

Then inspecting less than 5% of the imports when the #1 threat of terrorist attack is biological. I can’t believe there is even a debate regarding the import of foods. This issue falls into the same category as the Mexican border. It appears the powers that be want chaos so they can implement marshall law before they all get arrested for violating every oath and law in the book. Both political parties need to be abolished for the corruption and out right rape and pillage of the United States of America.

Unfortunately, last week Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told a group of rice growers that the only reason to work on food safety issues in the US is because it will “preserve markets” and “income opportunities.”

This is an a-moral position, and frankly terrifying for all Americans.

Seems to be Bush pretty much gutted all of the consumer safty systems that once use to protect us.

Due in the second half this year.

Success.

Also, the controversy of aspartame (substitute of sugar that presumably damage neurons) never surfaced again as the man who questioned seemed (AFAIK) to be fired from FDA some decades ago.

US may have a big problem. Money and business is a good incentive to hide unhealthy products.

The peanut problem is not the first time this has happened. There is the Chinese milk and Heparin contamination. The system is broken and it needs to be completely revised. This time without the help of any GD Republicans – thank you very much.

When Bush is in office she is all about not wasting money on the FDA or education for that matter. But as soon as a Dem is in office he must be held accountable. Why does Reuters even put this Ladies rants here. It will be the decline of the Republican party if her views remain here. They make us look stupid. Were was the funding for the FDA in 2008? No wonder we lost the elections.
