New push for federal food safety regulation



I write at Overlawyered about the (only too plausible) worries that it will make life untenable for many farmers and other small food producers.

Meanwhile, at the Wall Street Journal (via Genova), Nathan Koppel looks at the current state of nutritional/obesity litigation against food makers. Groups like the Center for Science in the Public Interest, having run into much resistance from judges to their schemes for obesity damage awards, court-ordered ingredient substitutions and the like, seems to have beaten a tactical retreat to the position that they're really just trying to achieve more disclosure.
