Food Safety in the United States – We have a long, long way to go

More than 50% of food manufacturers don’t know that they are supposed to provide the FDA with updated contact information in the case of emergencies, such as Salmonella or other forms of food contamination,  See it here in the federal report to be released yesterday by the Health and Human Services Inspector General’s office. The auditors conducting the report also found that 48% of the manufacturers they surveyed had not provided the FDA with accurate contact information, and about 25% provided no emergency contact information at all.
