Lori Wallach testifies on food & product safety


Today, our very own Lori Wallach testified on imported food and product safety before the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade and Consumer Protection, drawing on and expanding up the findings of our recent report. The Washington Post has already picked up the story:

U.S. trade and safety policies, coupled with the Consumer Product Safety Commission's "laissez-faire" attitude, have left American consumers to rely on foreign regulations and inspectors to ensure the safety of products in their homes, Wallach said.
