The 2010 Food Safety Modernization Act is the largest food safety udpate in this country in 70 years.

 

U.S. Congressman Greg Walden serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee that heard testimony.

 

"I know when I met with onion growers they were pointing out that field to field could be radically different and it wasn't even manageable.  I was talking with one of the growers that told me in 100 years, they had never had a salmonella outbreak and I thought that was a pretty good sample if doing analysis of risk."

 

In November, Walden met with researchers and onion growers at Oregon State's Malhuer County experiment station to learn about their research into food safety rules the FDA is developing.
