Consumers Union comments on USDA proposed reorganization

SUMMARY: Consumers Union, the policy and mobilization division of Consumer Reports, explains its opposition to the proposed move of the Codex Alimentarius program from the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) to the Undersecretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs. CU believes that moving the Codex Alimentarius program out of FSIS would not “improve the efficiency, [or] effectiveness” of the executive branch, but rather would diminish the efficiency and effectiveness of the program in protecting public health.
