Protecting and improving consumers across the country
Diana has taken a leading role in advocating for the protection of our nation’s food supply. Diana believes that the protection of our nation’s food supply should be recognized as a critical component of our national security. She is the author of two key pieces of legislation that go a long way toward securing our nation’s food supply.
SAFER (Safe And Fair Enforcement & Recall) Food Act, would give the United States Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration the authority to force a recall of all contaminated foods.
The TRACE (Tracing and Recalling Agricultural Contamination) Act would authorize the Secretary of Agriculture to establish a product tracing system to track products from their origins to the grocery store, enabling faster recall in the event of contamination.
Both food safety measures were endorsed by the New York Times and The Washington Post, and continue to be lauded by newspapers across the country.
Diana was also a key player in the creation and passage of groundbreaking consumer product safety legislation that was signed into law in 2008.
