Findlaw on Food Safety: In the wake of recent food recalls, foodborne illnesses, and reports of unhygienic food processing conditions noted in some factories, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Food Safety Enhancement Act this week in a vote of 283 to 142, significantly increasing resources for food inspection and quality control.

Although this article says FDA had no power over food imports, the law at Section 801 gives FDA MORE authority, allowing the agency to refuse to admit food that "appears" in violation, without having to prove that it is adulterated or filthy.

Here is a summary of the law.
