House Passes The FDA Food Safety Moderization Act

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the "FDA Food Safety Modernization Act" by a decisive 215 to 144 vote margin.  As discussed yesterday, in "Senate Votes For Mom And (Safer) Apple Pie," this legislation represents the most significant overhaul to food-related regulation in the history of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.  When President Obama signs these amendments into law, as he is sure to do, LEXVIVO will discuss further the new paradigm of food safety regulation this Act will represent.
