Obama Food Safety Working Group Launches Website

May 29, 2009

The Obama administration’s Food Safety Working Group has launched a website through which it intends to keep the public informed of its activities (to date, the only activity listed on the website is a listening session and breakout discussion among stakeholders that took place on May 13). Curiously, a photo on the website shows a refrigerator in which raw ground beef (albeit wrapped and resting in a deep-edged plate) is stored above uncovered fresh produce.  Query: if you did this in a commercial context, would it constitute a violation of good manufacturing practice requirements (21 C.F.R. Part 110)?
