They found Rat Poison in Pet Food

What they might find in food for human consumption, we may never know.
The government has new rules for preventing food poisoning in fresh-cut produce, but companies don’t have to follow them. - AGWeekly Online
Five years ago, farmers warned against transferring Agriculture Department employees into the vast new department. Congress went ahead anyway. Now plans to shift about 1,800 unarmed but pest-wise inspectors back into the Agriculture Department are blooming like mad. - FresnoBee

Federal health officials used a flawed analysis when they gave preliminary approval to food from cloned animals, a consumer group charged Wednesday.

In its report, the Center for Food Safety said the conclusions the Food and Drug Administration drew late last year were based on "scant data from few peer-reviewed studies" and failed to consider possible side effects of cloning. - Time

Next time you buy produce that is out of season where you live, but in season in South or Central America, please keep in mind that many pesticides that are banned in the U.S. for cancer causing or toxicity are routinely used in other countries. The Government is trying to ban labels letting people know where the food they buy comes from. I think it is important now, more than ever.
