Dingell Introduces H.R. 3610, the "Food and Drug Safety Import Act of 2007"
Rep. John D. Dingell, along with Reps. Frank Pallone (D-MI), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, and Bart Stupak (D-MI), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, today introduced legislation that would dramatically improve our country’s system for ensuring the safety of imported food and drugs: http://energycommerce.house.gov/

Don't skip over the Summary PDF of the bill. It proposes that user fees be placed on companies that import foods to cover the cost of inspecting and, imagine, testing conducted by the FDA. I believe we could all get behind that, since food companies that import ingredients have field tested on fur-kids and people to avoid having to do it themselves, with the result of the deadly pet food recall, among other tragedies. There are also provisions for country of origin labeling. So let representatives know what you think. Action on
this bill is pending soon.

You can send your comments directly to the committee at:
