In listening to a snippet of Michigan Radio last night, I learned that part of the problem in our national food system, that comes into play when bacteria are moved from animal guts to fields to plant-uptake (like spinach taking up the bacteria from manure water) comes from who regulates which aspect of the human food chain. Livestock agriculture is regulated by the USDA, while food crops are regulated by FDA – two different agencies. Think they’ve been able to figure out, together, a solution to this problem yet? Nope.
