CFA Asks for Science-Based Regulation, Transparency on Salmonella

CFA submitted the following comments in response to the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service’s (FSIS’s) Public Meeting entitled “Salmonella-State of the Science,” and on the agency’s concurrently released “Roadmap to Reducing Salmonella.” The letter points out that the U.S. has stalled in its progress on reducing salmonellosis, and argues that the measures included in the agency’s “Roadmap” do not go far enough, and in some cases may actually harm food safety.
