Iowa Food Safety Forum 2012 Features Rep. Tom Latham and Academy Leader

U.S. Rep. Tom Latham (Iowa) served as moderator for a recent food safety forum that included Teresa A. Nece, MS, RD, LD, vice chair of the Academy's Political Action Committee, who represented the Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The forum focused on the importance of improved food safety to Iowa and the nation's health and economy.

Speakers shared views on the importance of appropriate food safety regulations and ultimately the need for adequate funding for implementation of the important reforms included in the Food Modernization Act signed into law by President Obama in January 2011. Other discussion topics included establishing food safety priorities for industry and importance of education for consumers, food service employees, industry members and legislative leaders. The importance of developing partnerships to improve services to consumers as well as to food service operations was highlighted.

Dana Boner, food safety and victim advocate, spoke passionately about her 14-year-old daughter Kayla, who died from E. coli in 2007. Carolyn Brickley of the Pew Charitable Trust, shared information about surveys Pew has completed that determined Iowan’s support for appropriate funding for food safety programs.

Other speakers included Chuck Seaman, assistant vice president, compliance and food safety, at Hy-Vee; Dr. Patty Quinlisk, state medical officer, Iowa Department of Public Health; Dr. Jennifer Groos, Blank Children’s Hospital; and Randal Giroux, PhD, vice president, corporate food safety, quality and regulatory, Cargill.

Rep. Latham said he will be working with U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro (Conn.) this fall on this issue. Rep. DeLauro is a past recipient of the Academy’s Public Policy Leader Award.

The forum was sponsored by Hy-Vee.
