Re: E-M:/ Washington Post on Bill Mar Food Contamination

Enviro-Mich message from "Alex J. Sagady & Associates" <ajs@sagady.com>

My last message should have noted that this article in Sunday's
Washington Post concerns the Bill Mar plant in West Michigan
that is owned by Sara Lee, Inc.....This is the Michigan plant originating
the hot dogs and cold cuts that killed 21 people with listeria
contamination.

Senator Carl Levin should be sure to read this article with his
consistent efforts at regulatory reform and "cost vs. benefits"
analysis.

This should be required reading for John Engler, Russ Harding and Dan 
Wyant  so they can
absorb some lessons with their current emphasis on de-regulation
and voluntary (read "optional") approaches on
public health and environmental protection and their bashing of
so-called "command and control" regulation.

Bill Clinton's OMB bureaucrat and regulatory roadblock, Sally Katzen,
might get something out of it also.
