I know it is a bit odd for a foodborne illness trial lawyer to act as publisher (think of me as a good Rupert Murdoch) of an online newspaper, but I a very proud of what the staff, interns, freelancers and contributing writers have accomplished over the last year, and look forward to FSN’s continued opperation. Having people in D.C., Denver and Seattle has allowed FSN quick access to several of the major foodborne illness outbreaks in the last year (FSN was on the ground during the Gulf Oil Spill, the Wright County Egg Recall, etc.), as well as second by second coverage (via twitter) of what is, or is not happening in DC.  Here is some of the story of FSN:

Food Safety News encourages contributed articles and Op-eds.  Take the time to let your voice be heard.  Also, thanks the subscribers and readers.  Although small by New York Times standards, FSN is catching up.

    Great job Bill. As always, job nicely done.

  • Ann Quinn, consumer

    Lost the second of my three beloved 2007 pet food recall cats on September 1,
    2010, and am watching the third and last struggle with kidney disease. There will
    never not be a need for ever greater global food safety to protect consumers’
    families that I can see. And given the unfunded nature of S.510 and food safety agencies, Food Safety News and law firms will need to continue to hold food producers of every
    size responsible for foodborne illness outbreaks and their consequences for the foreseeable future in this consumer’s view.
    Thanks for being there, FSN, and keep up the good work!
