CRN Urges Congress to Vote on FDA Food Safety Modernization

September 23, 2010

Summer is winding down, and we have yet to see S. 510, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act receive a vote in Congress. The Council for Responsible Nutrition sent a letter to Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Judd Gregg (R-NH), reaffirming their support of a bill that, as of today, has the bipartisan support of 17 cosponsors (9 Democrats and 8 Republicans).
