FDA Safety Labs To Stay Open

After the recent rash of food recalls, I found this headline slighting re-assuring: FDA delays plans to close food safety labs.

It seems the Food and Drug Administration’s commissioner has suspended plans to close more than half the agency’s field laboratories as the FDA awaits recommendations from a presidential panel about how to better guarantee the safety of imported food and other products. On July 18, President Bush established the Import Safety Working Group asking for recommendations in 60 days.

The FDA is considering plans to consolidate its lab network to modernize its food safety efforts. Hopefully these recommendations will improve the FDA's ability to test imported and domestic food because I am getting sick of writing about all these recalls!
