Secretary of Ag Tom Vilsack
With the recent Salmonella scare ongoing, there is the familiar call for a single Federal Food Safety Agency instead of the Agriculture Department handling meat and poultry and the FDA overseeing the remainder. However, up till now every Secretary of Agriculture for the past 30 years has rejected that notion.

That is until Secretary Vilsack had these comments.
