NASDA Wants Proper Implementation Of Food Safety Act

At their annual meeting this week the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture members talked about food safety and the food safety modernization act legislation.  South Dakota State Ag Secretary Lucas Lentsch says he and his colleagues would like to see the safety standards in that legislation harmonized with other countries food safety rules so there’s a level playing field for imports and exports.

Lentsch says NASDA members also want to make sure the food safety modernization rules are properly implemented nationwide.

He says NASDA members also want Congress to pass a comprehensive five year farm bill as soon as possible.
