Reid Statement On Passage Of Food Safety Measure

Washington, DCNevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today after the Senate passed a measure to update our nation’s food safety system by unanimous consent:
“Our food safety system has not been updated in almost a century. Families in Nevada and across America should never have to worry about whether the food they put on their table is safe. This is a common-sense issue with broad bipartisan support. Tonight we unanimously passed a measure to improve on our current food safety system by giving the FDA the resources it needs to keep up with advances in food production and marketing, without unduly burdening farmers and food producers.”
