What does food 'safety' mean to you?

On the next Your Call we'll talk about the Food Safety Modernization Act that would give the FDA broader scope of regulation over the nation's food growers. Consumer advocates are celebrating the bill as a way to prevent food-borne illness. But some small scale farmers say it will drown them in paperwork and fees and will lead to more sterilized--but not necessarily safer--food and soil. What is the best way to keep our food supply safe? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at feedback@yourcallradio.org. It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
