House Bill Requires FDA Overhaul on Food Safety and Allows Prescription Drug Imports

In the flurry of activity before the recess, the House passed a bill yesterday that would require the FDA to overhaul its food safety operations.   Reuters reports on the bill as does the AP (with two very different focuses - you'd think they were talking about different bills). 

It is, in fact, the same bill.   In addition to the food safety overhaul, the bill also allows importation of prescription drugs.  (Reuters focuses on the food safety aspects, while the AP story focuses on the prescription drug provisions).   President Bush has promised to veto the bill.
