Taylor says legislation would bring “new era” of food safety


In a commentary appearing in The Atlantic (1/12), FDA senior advisor Michael Taylor discusses the agency’s food safety initiatives for the coming year. Taylor said the nation “is at an historic tipping point,” with Congress close to passing legislation that will “usher in a new era of food safety in this country.” Citing the new “One Mission, One Program” Initiative, Taylor noted that the agency is “working to answer the tough questions and create a new operating norm for the FDA Foods Program, one in which our work will be seamless and collaborative, unified by the common goal of protecting public health.”
