Snap-O Fact #54

President Obama Protected Your Right To Healthy Food!

Each year, illness caused by food problems affects millions of Americans and kills thousands of people. Instead of waiting for problems to happen and then solve them, the Obama Administration has taken aggressive action to prevent many food supply problems before they occur.

Specifically, President Obama signed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act on Jan 4, 2011. As a result of this act a new and better food safety system has been built with the support of many public and private partners 

 For example, the Act requires scientific standards to ensure the safety of production and harvesting of fruits and vegetables. This legislation also increases the FDA’s capability to control and examine millions of food products coming into the United States from other countries.
