Official: Sequester to reduce FDA food inspections
from USA Today
The Food and Drug Administration will conduct fewer food safety inspections this year because of the government sequester, commissioner Margaret Hamburg said. While consumers may not feel the impact immediately, the loss of $209 million from its budget will force the agency to conduct about 2,100 fewer inspections, an 18 percent decline compared to last year.
