USA - US bill would boost FDA powers, increase food and drug inspections

Legislation unveiled in the House of Representatives this week would increase Food and Drug Administration powers and the frequency of safety inspections – but would require industry to cover the cost. The bill – proposed by Democrats on the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee – would require food companies to be inspected at least once every four years, and drug companies at least every two, but would require manufacturers to pay fees to the FDA.
