FDA law shifts gov. from “reactive to proactive”

On Jan. 4, 2011, President Obama signed into law the Food Safety Modernization Act, which gives more power to the FDA and upgrades safety regulations. The law affects all whole and processed foods except for those under regulation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This new law is a big step forward for food safety; Fairfield University’s own Professor Debra M. Strauss of Business Law explained the rules of the Food Safety Modernization Act and the impact it will have on Americans’ food.
