House To Take Up Food Safety Bill, But Does It Matter To Consumers?

From The Hill:

The House this week will consider legislation to modernize the nation's food-safety protections, a top Democrat indicated Tuesday.

Although the Senate passed a food-safety bill last week, it contained tax provisions that, according to the Constitution, must originate in the House.  

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told reporters Tuesday that the lower chamber this week will take up a new House bill, in hopes of sending it back to the Senate before the weekend.

But would more recalls matter to consumers?   No, says a recent New York Times article:

Consumers also seem to be tuning out information on recalls. Researchers at the Food Policy Institute at Rutgers found only 6 in 10 people take the time to look for problem products at home.
