Each year millions Americans are sickened, hospitalized, or die as the result of something they put into their stomach.  To reduce this largely preventable public health problem, President Obama signed the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) into law.  The FSMA gives the United State Food & Drug Administration more authority and resources for food contamination prevention and food inspections.  Nonetheless,there has been increase in foodborne illness because the government has not taken steps to coordinate the efforts of the agencies that are  responsible for keeping food safe.
