OBAMA AND THE FDA 150 150 Lauren Ellerman

FDA – The Federal Drug Administration, has a great deal of responsibility. Products, medicine, imports, exports – and now with a new President in the White House, we may see a review of how this huge governmental agency works.

Making the peanut butter issue personal, the President told press this week his daughter eats peanut butter for lunch many times a week. Like millions of other Americans, he doesn’t want to worry about whether she is going to get sick as a result of eating her lunch.

And I don’t want nursing home residents to get sick, or homeless shelter residents, college kids – anyone who eats the stuff. SO lets get it done – let’s revamp the FDA and local health departments such that these accidents, are prevented, not just discovered after people have lost their lives.
