President Obama Names New FDA Head, Calls Food Safety System a "Hazard to Public Health"

Right around the inauguration, I posted a blog entry wondering if the new Prez would take on the current, broken and ineffective FDA system of reviewing food safety.

Looks like he's going to give it a go.

Check out the MSNBC.com article and link below for some encouraging news on this front:

"Obama: Food safety system is health 'hazard' President Barack Obama says the nation's decades-old food safety system is a "hazard to public health" and in need of an overhaul."
