Documents posted online last week in the interest of governmental transparency (and yay for that) show that the White House Office of Management and Budget "significantly weakened" food safety rules proposed by the FDA. It looks like the White House is letting the food industry have its way with the proposed rules, and the online documents show exactly what changes the OMB made, apparently at the industry's behest—including "stripping product and environmental testing requirements." Because WHO NEEDS THOSE when our food chain is screwed 10 ways to Sunday and people keep getting sick all over the place from just eating food?

Tell the President that we need tighter, not looser, controls on food safety right over here.
