Schumer wants FDA to react more quickly to food recalls

Local News

Senator Schumer is pushing for the FDA to react faster in food recall situations.

The New York Senator said yesterday that food companies can sometimes take months to act after becoming aware of a contamination.

Schumer said when you go to the supermarket you want to know your food is safe.

This statement comes after the recent recall of General Mills flour which has been linked to cases of E. coli in more than 20-states including one in New York.
