Urge Your Representative in Congress to Cosponsor The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009

Here’s a small excerpt of what you’ll see on that page:

“Like you, I’m outraged about the latest food-poisoning outbreak caused by peanut products contaminated with deadly Salmonella bacteria. As the director of food safety here at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, I have seen a disturbing increase in the incidence of food-borne disease outbreaks.

This is the largest recall of its kind in our history. Close to 1,800 products are now implicated—and because of the long shelf life of many of these products, they may linger in unsuspecting Americans’ cupboards for many months.

More than 600 people have contracted serious infections after eating these tainted food products. More than 100 have been hospitalized. And eight families are grieving the senseless loss of a loved family member.

I need your help with three things to help us contain the current outbreak and to seize a historic opportunity in Washington to prevent these outbreaks in the future.”

Go there now – and put in your powerful ‘2cents’.

If fast, free, simple – and will only help us live better lives.

Your trainer,

Joey Atlas
