FDA dairy czar John Sheehan’s resume

It’s taken a lot of investigative journalism, freedom of information requests, and a Nietzschean “long will” but now at last, the work history of the leader of the FDA’s dairy enforcement czar has finally been revealed, in spite of the agency’s best efforts to keep it secret. What, does that mean they’re NOT all-powerful? There may yet be hope!

From David E. Gumpert on the Complete Patient blog:

"Givin' you a number.. and takin' 'way your name"

“You have to wonder: What has John Sheehan been trying so hard to hide in refusing to disclose information about himself?

Consumer groups fights for continued access to artisanal food producers

Price Foundation, a consumer nutrition organization, has filed its third set of comments with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the agency’s implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).  The most recent comments addressed the preparation of traditional foods – specifically raw milk cheeses, bone broths, and lacto-fermented vegetables – in a safe manner.

“These foods play an important role in an optimal diet, and their production should be encouraged in the interests of Americans’ health and vitality,” said Sally Fallon Morell, founder and president of WAPF.  “These foods have been safely prepared and consumed by people all over the world for centuries, and FDA needs to understand the traditions and science behind them.  Treating these artisanal foods as if they were inherently dangerous would only undermine their quality, while not serving the goal of food safety.” Continue reading
