WJZ TV reports former USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service director Michael Taylor has concerns with the current U.S. food safety system, saying, "We have a system that’s not working as well as we can and we will continue having these problems until we address prevention."

Food safety experts have been advocating for a single food safety agency to regulate the U.S. food supply. Taylor pointed out no one agency regulates the food industry and in particular produce. ‘We have a fragmented system with the FDA being responsible for part of the food supply and the USDA being responsible for meat and poultry.’"
