Those who eat food can enjoy the fruits of President Obama’s recent selection for deputy agriculture secretary. Look for more stringent laws about how food can be labeled, especially organic and antibiotic free labeled foods.
“President Obama has tapped Kathleen Merrigan, an academic and former congressional aide who helped write federal organic food-labeling rules, to be deputy agriculture secretary. The White House announced the pick yesterday, drawing cheers from food-safety advocates, who have pushed for more stringent labeling regs.”
