Food Recall Increase?

It appears that food warnings and recalls, particularly from products originating from China, have been on the rise. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) places the onus of food safety on the importer, who must adhere to the CFIA's quality standards. While this has been little comfort to those upset by the rash of recent recalls, it has increased awareness of such issues, catalysing growth of such organizations as Canadian Partnership for Consumer Food Safety Education and increasing awareness of the benefits of locally grown and organic food.
