|English: Theodore Roosevelt, circa 1902 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
"On this day in 1906, the Pure Food and Drug Act cleared a hurdle toward its passage when the House and Senate both endorsed a joint conference committee report favoring the bill. The House vote was 240-17. President Theodore Roosevelt signed the landmark Progressive Era legislation into law on June 30.
The statute for the first time regulated food and drugs that moved in interstate commerce and forbade the manufacture, sale or transportation of poisonous patent medicines. It arose, with strong White House support, in the wake of exposés by such muckrakers as Upton Sinclair and Samuel Hopkins Adams."
