David Rosenfield was quoted in Fortune about President Obama's proposal to consolidate the 15 government agencies that conduct various food safety inspections into one newly created agency, the Food and Safety Administration within the Department of Health and Human Services. David discussed the implications of this proposal to ongoing implementation of the 2011 FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the first update to U.S. food safety laws in 70 years. "In my opinion, the implementation of the FSMA will make any necessary changes to food inspection in the U.S.," David said.
