EWG statement on Reagan-Udall Foundation FDA report

WASHINGTON – The following is a statement from Scott Faber, Environmental Working Group senior vice president for government affairs, on the Reagan-Udall Foundation’s Operational Evaluation of FDA’s Human Foods Program report, issued today.

This report confirms that cultural and organizational flaws and resource needs are contributing to failures that are making our food less safe. We applaud the Reagan-Udall Foundation panel and urge Commissioner Califf to move quickly to make the structural changes needed to break down silos and improve communication within the FDA. And we urge Congress to ensure the FDA has the resources it needs to address the risks posed by foodborne illness.
