Law and orders

A Boston Globe article about the impact that a lawsuit brought against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will have on the organization’s ability to regulate food quoted Michael Doyle, Regents Professor of Food Microbiology and director of UGA’s Center for Food Safety.

“More often than not the public health authorities and the epidemiologists are correct,” Doyle said. “If you start putting public health officials in the crosshairs of the lawyers it’s probably going to have a major dampening effect on whether foods are recalled in time to prevent a substantial amount of illnesses.”
