A fact sheet that briefly appeared on Donald Trump’s official website highlighting his economic agenda should he become president included a proposal to eliminate some food safety regulations. The fact sheet was later removed from the site, and a replacement version did not include any mention of the FDA.
A screenshot of the original fact sheet was posted online. The text listed several regulations to be eliminated and included the following paragraph:
“The FDA Food Police, which dictate how the federal government expects farmers to produce fruits and vegetables and even dictates the nutritional content of dog food. The rules govern the soli farmers use, farm and food production hygiene, food packaging, food temperatures, and even what animals may roam which fields and when. It also greatly increased inspections of food ‘facilities,’ and levies new taxes to pay for this inspection overkill.
