The title of this blog really should be "5 Things the FDA Probably Won't do for Food Safety Management in 2012."

Before you call me a pessimist, leave and go check your facebook page, let me clarify.  It's not that I don't believe in the Food and Drug Administration - quite the opposite; I think the FDA and similar regulatory agencies serve an invaluable role in society.  What I mean is that while the FDA has a strong backing in the Drug and Device manufacturing arm of the organization, Food and Food Safety has always taken a back seat. Even with the $1.4 billion allocated to the Food Safety Modernization Act over the next 5 years, the FDA still lacks the funds to enforce the act;  with federal goverment budget cuts planned for 2013, it doesn't look promising.
