    Government shutdown stops FDA food safety inspections

    https://www.nbcnews.com/health/healt...ctions-n956716

    "There are important things we are not doing," FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb says.

    The ongoing federal government shutdown has stopped most food safety inspections, but the Food and Drug Administration is planning to resume at least some of them. To do it, the agency will have to force furloughed workers to come back without pay.

    FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said he is trying to pinpoint the most essential inspections, while making sure that employees do not suffer too much.
    =========================================
    Recent outbreaks of crop-borne illnesses like Salmonella should make that area one of the 'essential inspections.'

    ... but, the wall... the crisis at the border!

    Trump Pelosi and Chuck all said:
    Let them eat cake.

    One side would rather people die in the street unless they get a wall, the other would rather they die in the streets than approve a wall. Perfect example of people putting ego above country on both sides

    Good. The FDAs rules and regulations were worthless anyway.

    So you would like your sausage to contain more rat dropping and maggots in it? Maybe you would prefer to play mad cow roulette when it comes to a T-bone. Maybe you would prefer sugar pills instead of the medications you take, if any at all. Or have you been secretly hoping to peddle some Uncle Tom's Cure All. Good for curing tooth aches, AIDS, and removing brake dust.
