VOAVideo: US Moves to Improve Food Safety
More steps are being taken to improve U.S. food safety. The Agriculture Department unveiled new regulations (April 5th) that would force meat and poultry companies to delay shipments to consumers until government inspectors get results of products they have tested for E-coli bacteria and other contaminants. The move is an effort by the government to prevent outbreaks of food poisoning and reduce the number of costly product recalls. Chris Simkins reports.
