Food Safety Regulations Backlog Affects FDA and USDA

Backlog for Food Safety Regulations Includes Both FDA and USDA | Food Safety News:

"Everyone knows about the food safety rules held up by “oh-eye-rah,” or as it is formally known at the White House, the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA). But it’s not just the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that is waiting; the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) also has food safety rules on hold too.

OIRA – the executive branch’s regulatory referee – has recently turned into a  bottleneck for the rules FDA needs to implement the new Food Safety Modernization Act.  The Act has been the subject of a lot of attention and, in recent months, even a lawsuit. A USDA rule requiring meat businesses to improve grinding logs and inventories, however, has gone relatively unnoticed, but this law is also held up by the powerful little White House office."
