More Food Safety News

Following my post yesterday (with links to two articles concerning food safety), today's New York Times coincidentally has another story (front page) on the subject.

The article discusses a new effort by some food producers to better police themselves:

"With huge losses from food-poisoning recalls and little oversight from the federal Food and Drug Administration, some sectors of the food industry are cobbling together their own form of regulation in an attempt to reassure consumers. They are paying other government agencies to do what the F.D.A. rarely does: muck through fields and pore over records to make sure food is handled properly."
