Can the FDA keep our food supply safe?
Kellogg recalled 28 million boxes of Froot Loops, Apple Jacks, Corn Pops and Honey Smacks cereals this summer after dozens of consumers reported a strange taste and odor, and some complained of nausea and diarrhea.
The cereal recall shows there are huge gaps in the government's knowledge about chemicals in everyday consumer products, from furniture to clothing to children's products. Under current laws, the government has little or no information about the health risks posed by most of the 80,000 chemicals on the U.S. market today.
Do you have faith in the U.S. food system and the FDA's ability to regulate the chemicals that go into the foods we eat?
