Marler Blog Providing Commentary on Food Poisoning Outbreaks & Litigation

Improving food safety in the US

I had an opportunity to be on Inside Story Americas on Aljazeera yesterday. Here is the link.

Here is one of my quotes:

“I think our government and industry has a responsibility to try to drive those numbers down. The numbers of many foodborne pathogens have gone down, but they have gone down because of very extensive regulation on the meat side …. We’re certainly not going to drive this down to zero, but we have an obligation to the families of the people that I represent to do a heck of a better job than we are doing now.”
