Food Blogs in the ABA Top 100 blogs -- Marlerblog and FDA Law Blog
Two of my favorite blogs have made the Third Annual ABA Journal Blawg 100. The ABA (American Bar Association) invites online readers to vote for their favorites.
Bill Marler's MarlerBlog has been my favorite source of food safety information. Bill posts often, uses humor and graphics, and is right on top of every foodborne pathogen outbreak. Here's what the ABA says:
Marler Blog is the flagship of Seattle lawyer Bill Marler’s fleet of 10 blogs devoted to food-borne illness. It covers reports of outbreaks and adds commentary on how governments and corporations should respond to them.
Quick Take: Marler took his show on the road, appearing on Larry King Live in October as an expert on food-borne illness.
FDA Law Blog covers everything to do with the FDA, which means a lot of drug and medical device news that mostly goes over my head, but when there is Food News from FDA, this blog is really helpful in clarifying the legal issues and providing context.
At FDA Law Blog, lawyers from Hyman, Phelps & McNamara in Washington, D.C., cover conferences, court rulings and Federal Trade Commission actions related to the Food and Drug Administration, as well as FDA announcements and draft guidance documents. It also tracks legislation and citizen petitions related to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
Quick Take: Reader Cheryl Graham works at the FDA but says she depends on the blog for up-to-date regulatory information. “There is no one within the agency that does what this blog provides.”
