March 3 Bloomberg — Food-safety legislation introduced in the Senate today would give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration new power to order recalls and open companies’ internal records for inspection.

Senators Richard Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, and Judd Gregg, Republican of New Hampshire, sponsored the measure, the first since President Barack Obama offered a budget proposal last week allocating $1 billion to strengthen food safety.
