DENVER — It seems like we’re hearing about one food recall after another lately. Experts say 1 in 6 Americans will get sick from contaminated food. Now consumer advocates are calling for tougher standards.
There have been two major nationwide food recalls in the past month. Foster Farms chicken was pulled from shelves after being contaminated by Salmonella. More than 300 people in 17 states ended up sick.
Listeria was found in Reser’s ready-to-eat products just last week.
Yet Danny Katz of the Colorado Public Interest Research Group, COPIRG, says recalls aren’t enough to protect our families.
