Obama warns of US food 'hazard'
President Barack Obama has said the US food safety system is a "public health hazard" and in need of an overhaul.

He sounded the warning during his weekly radio and video address, as he appointed a new head of the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

New York Health Commissioner Margaret Hamburg has been named for the post.

Mr Obama cited a string of recent food safety scandals including a salmonella outbreak in peanut products this year that has been linked to nine deaths.

I've heard a lot about supervising state-side farms and processing.  But so much of our contaminated food is imported; are they planning to inspect that?

I just see this as a way for the Federal Government to pass bills for NAIS and Federal inspections of small farms and businesses.
