IG's Report Finds "Significant Weaknesses" in FDA Inspections of Food Facilities

On The Hill (4/7) "Congress Blog," Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) wrote that "the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General released a new report on the Food and Drug Administration's inspections of domestic food facilities." The "report identifies significant weaknesses...including the fact that FDA inspects less than a quarter of food facilities each year, and that more than half of all food facilities have gone five or more years without an FDA inspection," facts the senator calls "unacceptable."
