President Barack Obama wants a review of the Food and Drug Administration after a massive peanut butter recall for salmonella contamination.
In an interview with The Today Show’s Matt Lauer before Sunday’s Super Bowl, Obama said he isn’t happy with FDA’s inspections process.
Well, I think that the FDA has not been able to catch some of these things as quickly as I expect them to catch. And so weâ€™re going to be doing a complete review of FDA operations. I donâ€™t want to prejudge this particular case, but there have been enough instances over the last several years â€“- and at bare minimum we should be able to count on our government keeping our kids safe when they eat peanut butter.
