    I think the word "takeover" is being misused here. The FDA isn't nationalizing those plants like Hugo Chavez nationalized corporations in Venezuala so there is not reek of communism nor socialism here. It's only about making those plants comply with the law before someone dies.

    Either the plants comply or they'll be shut down. If they comply, they'll continue to generate profits for their stock investors as usual.

    Don't worry Divine, Tammerlain was being sarcastic. We know him well here.

    One of the very, very few times me and the FDA agree on something.

    Right action taken IMHO.
