Obama proposes new Food Safety agency to be created under HHS – will combine responsibilities of FDA and USDA

Obama proposes creation of stand-alone U.S. food safety agency -– February 3, 2015, By Toni Clarke, The News Daily

The proposal was put forward as part of the President’s 2016 budget plan. The new agency would combine the food safety responsibilities of the FDA, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other agencies. A single Federal food safety agency would provide focused, centralized leadership, a primary voice on food safety standards and compliance with those standards, and clear lines of responsibility and accountability that will enhance both prevention of and responses to outbreaks of food-borne illnesses, the budget proposal noted…

G2X TAKE: Food Safety is an increasingly large and controversial issue and any new agency is certain to be well funded. Anytime you talk about creating a new agency at HHS, it is worth monitoring as this means a new CIO, lots of new funding and consolidation efforts to support bringing all of these pieces together under one umbrella. If you are at FDA or at USDA today, there are definitely opportunities here for those who get in front of this; but you can also expect a lot of attention from new companies trying to break in.
