Cochran seeks tougher regs for imported fish
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A critical Government Accountability Office (GAO) report on the inspection of seafood imported into the United States gives credence to the argument that the federal government must do more to protect American consumers, U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) said today.
The GAO today released a report titled “Seafood Safety: FDA Needs to Improve Oversight of Imported Seafood and Better Leverage Limited Resources,” that provides an unfavorable assessment of the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) efforts to inspect imported seafood.
