FDA needs a warning about their lack of funding

The recalls never end from the FDA. In the last seven days, the Food and Drug Administration has issued multiple recalls. One of the recalls? Ruffles potato chips -- recalled August 21st -- undeclared milk. Also recalled? Peaches -- from Wawona and from Wegmans.

Consumer Healthcare Products Association notes:


FDA has been underfunded for a number of years and the challenges presented by lack of funding make it more difficult for the agency to fulfill its core mission of ensuring the safety of the nation’s food and drug supply and ensuring timely approvals of innovative medical products that benefit consumers.


 It's a real shame Joe Biden's not addressing this issue or even mentioning it.
