Foodborne Illness Survivors Tell President Obama, We Can’t Wait

This morning a coalition of food safety advocates, medical experts and foodborne illness victims held a telebriefing to discuss the critical need for full implementation and funding of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).    I participated in same and this is what I learned.

Please take a minute to read through these important points and take action!  Visit www.MakeOurFoodSafe.org to take action; give President Obama a Kick in the Tush.  Ask him to make our food safe!

The problem:

  • According to the CDC, 48,000,000 Americans contract a foodborne illness each year – that’s one in six of us
  • Children account for about half of these
  • Overall, foodborne illnesses result in 128,000 hospitalizations …
  • … and 3,000 deaths …
  • … costing our healthcare system $70 billion.

The solution (almost):

  • Congress passed and President Obama signed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act on January 4, 2011
  • This was the first major overhaul to our food system in 70 years, and it had the support of the food industry, consumer advocates and the medical and health communities—not to mention bipartisan support in Congress
  • But 18 months later, the Obama Administration hasn’t yet implemented the major pieces of the bill that would improve the safety of:

o   Fruits and vegetables

o   Packaged foods

o   Imported foods

What can you do?

Thank you!!!
