In an effort to improve food safety and omit overlap between authorizing agencies, The Safe Food Act of 2015 was introduced in both houses of Congress on January 28th. This bill was introduced by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT).

The aim is to authorize all food safety inspections, enforcement, and labeling activities – independent of one federal department.

The agencies that will be incorporated include:

“What the bill does is remedy the situation,” DeLauro said. “With a single agency, we believe our country will be able to have the ability to detect relatively minor problems before they become major outbreaks.”

Both Durbin and DeLauro consider food safety an issue of national security. This Act will build upon the improvements made to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
