FDA acts against 5 electronic cigarette distributors

http://www.fda.gov

The FDA uses it's powers to ban "electronic" cigarets. Welcome to the new powers of the government.

Aren't these really a toy instead of a food, drug or cosmetic? Yes, yes, yes. I know how they work and that these can be used as a drug delivery system. So does your automobile. I believe that the FDA needs to narrow it's focus and do a better job there instead of expanding what it does. Consumer Reports or similar private testing agency would be a better forum for public safety with respect these devices.

Prepare for what may the largest food recall in North American history

http://www.bloomberg.com

Salmonella contamination at a Nevada food-flavoring plant may trigger the recall of as many as 10,000 products, according to a Consumers Union scientist.

PepsiCo Inc. joined Procter & Gamble Co., Nestle SA and McCormick & Co. yesterday in recalling food containing hydrolyzed vegetable protein, or HVP.

To date, there are no known illnesses associated with the contaminated HVP, which is sometimes referred to as a “natural flavor” on ingredient labels
