The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee passed S. 510, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, by a voice vote on Wednesday. S. 510 would increase government oversight of the food sector by expanding the FDA authority with mandatory recalls, increased inspection rates, collection of fees and require all facilities to have a food safety plan.

The legislation would "establish the Food Safety Administration within the Department of Health and Human Services to protect the public health by preventing food-borne illness, ensuring the safety of food, improving research on contaminants leading to food-borne illness, and improving security of food from intentional contamination, and for other purposes."

This version of the act does not include provisions to further regulate the use of antibiotics in livestock production.
