The Fake Food Safety bills: Feeding America poison one law at a time

• Marti Oakley
 We are now routinely threatened with ever increasing recalls of foods infected with common bacteria and viruses. This is not a result of bad farming or animal practices by US producers. It is however, the result of failure to inspect foods imported into the US and the sickening practice of co-mingling those foods, grown and processed under who knows what kinds of conditions, with the food produced domestically. It is also a failure to inspect or hold accountable unscrupulous corporate processors who pay little to no attention to sanitation standards. There is no intent to increase the number of inspectors in these processing plants and the owners have little to fear from an agency more than willing to turn a blind eye.
