Program that caught spinach recall schedule to be dismantled

Recently, the federal government program that inspects various foods imported into the United States discovered the presence of salmonella poison in 5-ounce clamshell packages of “Private Selections” Organic Baby Spinach and 10-ounce clamshell packages of “Marketside” Organic Baby Spinach.  The program likely prevented thousands of people from becoming ill as well as possibly saving lives.  Most people recover from Salmonella in a few days, but some can be left with permanent damage when their immune systems attack the poison.  About 400 people in the United States die every year from salmonella, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The government testing program that discovered the presence of the poison and announced the recall will be dismantled in 2013 due to the changes made by the 2013 Federal Budget Plan.  Regardless of your political party, I believe we can all agree that the safety of the public as a whole from poison present in foods we all eat should be a priority.
