A quick aside - salmonella and the FDA

People like to pick on the FDA for not doing its job in the lastest 1,000+ people outbreak, but thefollowing articles might explain things more clearly- From Yahoo - How the Food Industry lobied to reduce tracking paper work because it made things to burdensome. And
And article from the Los Angeles Times - How the reduction of the number of FDA inspectors has be steadily dwindling since the Reagan Years.
All of this is scary stuff, we have experienced this in little old Stamford significantly and that will be another post at some point in time.
