Publisher’s Platform: How Food Safety Has Changed Since 1993

I recently participated in “The Conversation”, which aired on the local Seattle public television station, KCTS.  Enrique Cerna and I talked about how food safety — and the laws that govern food safety — have changed since I represented victims of the 1993 Jack in the Box E. coli outbreak.  I think it airs opposite of the Superbowl this Sunday.

    Hey, Bill, great interview . . . until the last couple of moments. Your statement about small producers having relatively little risk is going to give thousands of producers something additional to wave around under their FSMA Tester Amendment “shield”. Can you please make it clear, at all times, that a farm/business of any size or location in the U.S. that SELLS a product has legal responsibility not to adulterate fresh or processed foods under the 1938 (FDA) Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (among other federal and state rules/laws).
    Bill, thanks for all you have done to “inspire” agriculture in the US and worldwide get safer!
