Our food supply could be safer than it is. Many of the hazards can be prevented. As an attorney, an activist and – most importantly – the mother of three, I know the most important thing the Senate can do right now is update the laws that protect the public from dangers on our dinner plates.

Several mothers whose children have been victims of foodborne illness have traveled from across the nation to participate in the Make Our Food Safe ( Food Safety Action Day on October 7. These mothers and other family members are visiting the lawmakers who represent them and making sure they know it is time to pass comprehensive food-safety legislation that will make our food safer.
