Relaunch of www.foodsafety.gov

HHS will be relaunching www.foodsafety.gov today, Thursday, August 27, 2009, as an initiative of the White House Food Safety Working Group. 

About the President's Food Safety Working Group (FSWG)

The safety of our nation's food supply is a concern for families throughout the country, as well as American agriculture, business, industry, and the public sector.

On March 14, 2009, President Barack Obama announced the creation of the Food Safety Working Group, chaired by the Secretaries of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture.

As the President said in his address, the working group "will bring together cabinet secretaries and senior officials to advise me on how we can upgrade our food safety laws for the 21st century; foster coordination throughout government; and ensure that we are not just designing laws that will keep the American people safe, but enforcing them."

It occurs to me that "FSWG" could also stand for "Food Safety is What you Get."
