Obama: Let's Take Food Regulation out of FDA | RAPS

Read the full article: Obama: Let's Take Food Regulation out of FDA | RAPS:

"The proposal, contained within Obama's budget proposal for fiscal year 2016, would consolidate all regulatory authority for food under a "single new agency within The Department of Health and Human Services," according to the budget.

"This new agency would be independent from FDA and have primary responsibility for food safety inspections, enforcement, applied research, and outbreak response and mitigation," the White House explains in the budget. "The new agency would be charged with pursuing a modern, science-based food safety regulatory regime drawing on best practices of both agencies, with strong enforcement and recall mechanisms, expertise in risk assessment, and enforcement and research efforts across all food types based on scientifically supportable assessments of threats to public health. The agency would also serve as the central point for coordinating with State and local entities and food safety stakeholders.""
