Art also developing the FDA be heard about this they -- have passed sweeping new food safety rules and decades.
To protect us because there's been a wake of deadly outbreaks of food borne illnesses down and peanuts and cantaloupe even leafy greens.
-- to tell you about the new roles they're aimed at reducing the estimated 3000 deaths a year from contaminated food that's way too many doctors -- -- this is absolutely a serious problem food poisoning this country if it's over a 130000.
Hospital position and as you mentioned 3000 people died.
This should not happen I'm actually really excited about the fact that we have this regulation going on now.
The whole food safety modernization act was passed in 2010.
But was not -- until this week when FDA actually.
But on this what this really means.
Is that they're going to look at the farmers they're looking at -- -- water contamination looking for those bacteria is making sure that -- all the equipment has been involved with our food.
System is safe so we don't have a lot of people just getting this kind of contamination.
The listeria in captain -- you know Salmonella is here -- butter E.
Coli in in our leafy.
Let us doesn't have to happen.
It is a way to prevent.
Rather than to react to after it happens.
-- -- said millions of dollars.
And hopefully -- it's great that the FDA -- doctor -- but.
First of all why weren't they before to this degree but we can't only rely on them I suppose what should we do with some of these kids.
Weren't they -- -- before is a great question there's a gap between the USDA department of agriculture and the FDA which says -- wait let's wait till it's food before we have any jurisdiction by the time it's food and may already be contaminated.
And there's there's a two pronged attack here what is on the food manufacturers clamping down on them and the other is on the farms.
Clamping down on them in the farms are gonna look at the Ford w.s which David -- as he loves -- and -- the -- -- wanted to water waste workers and wild animals.
Water is contamination of irrigation workers did you wash your hands properly wild animals what animals are are getting into the farming land here and and waste.
You have those toilets off the fields so that you don't get contaminated that way so that's those -- the -- fourth.
I think it's also important to make sure not just protect ourselves here -- we get about 50% off our food.
Resources coming from outside.
And you've got -- basically hold on to the same standard and that's the way we're gonna protect the public but -- -- not accidents are -- and I think that that.
That farmers farmers are going to be looking into and that's the cost and I you know everybody is in favor of safe.
Food but anytime you introduce new regulations and new rules.
It's -- -- mean that farmers are gonna have to spend more money to -- Follow those rules and those are but those those cost are gonna get passed down -- -- It's a great point and they're estimating 30000 dollars -- large form which is not nothing small and that's gonna prop probably be a problem in terms of the economy if it actually if they don't find ways to evade it now they find ways to -- made it.
Jane was getting at the other point you on the other candidates have got to watch your vegetables you gotta wash your hands in the key point here is the things that aren't hooked you would think that that's obviously really raw vegetable or -- -- That's where you're gonna get that -- -- that back through most commonly.
All right a cigarette.
