"USDA inspects manufacturers of packaged open-face meat or poultry sandwiches (e.g., those with one slice of bread), but FDA inspects manufacturers of packaged closed-face meat or poultry sandwiches (e.g., those with two slices of bread)."A follow-up thought from my last post:
- Federal Oversight Of Food Safety: High-Risk Designation Can Bring Needed Attention To Fragmented System
Why does the FDA, who inspects closed-face sandwiches, feel they can do a better job ensuring consumer safety with recall authority ... yet the USDA, who inspects open-face sandwiches, feel they can do a better job ensuring consumer safety without recall authority?
Someone really needs to coordinate the activities of these agencies.
