I'm super excited because this week the Senate passed the bill to overhaul the food safety system.Â The Food Safety Bill will revamp the system, after "tainted eggs, peanut butter and spinach sickened thousands of people in the last few years."
I admire President Obama for making food safety a priority for his administration.Â The passing of the bill is still contingent upon the House of Representatives' approval.
If passed, the bill would allow the Food and Drug Administration the power to "recall tainted foods, increase inspections, demand accountability from food companies and oversee farming."
I very much hope the bill goes through, the changes it would represent would help every American avoid contaminated foods.
