Obama Orders Review Of FDA In Wake Of Salmonella Outbreak

President Obama has had it up to here with poor FDA oversight, particularly of salmonella-infested peanut factories, and he’s called for a review of the underfunded organization, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Obama said Americans should be able to count on the government to keep children safe when they eat peanut butter, and that includes his 7-year-old daughter, Sasha, the AP reported.

“That’s what Sasha eats for lunch probably three times a week,” Obama said. “And you know, I don’t wanna have to worry about whether she’s gonna get sick as a consequence to having her lunch.”
