Letter to Honorable Rosa DeLauro Re: Federal Food Safety System

CU commends a decision to hold a hearing on the federal food safety system, which we believe is fragmented, underfunded, more responsive to the needs of industry than the needs of consumers, and in need of modernization to deal with new safety questions posed by 21st century agriculture.
