Food Safety: Some Changes Are Needed

  • Parnell, Jack C.
Registered author(s):

    Consumers are concerned about the safety of our food. While changes are needed in the way our society deals with pesticides, the regulation of their use must be based on science. Proposals by the Administration are designed to streamline and improve the food safety regulatory network. The proposals would change pesticide registration and cancellation procedures; make Federal regulations consistent by establishing a negligible risk standard for processed foods; and establish national uniformity for tolerances.
