Marler shouts out

June 4, 2009

California Sen. Dean Florez (D-Shafter)

Food safety attorney Bill Marler sent a shout out to California Senate Majority Leader Dean Florez (D-Shafter) for two pieces of legislation he’s proposed. One would phase out the use of non-therapeutic antibiotics on food animals beginning with meat destined for school lunches. The other would require producers to report positive tests “for any food-borne illness to the California Department of Public Health and maintain records of all testing for two years”. In addition, the CDPH would be given the authority to issue mandatory recalls.
