The president is expected to sign a massive overhaul of the nation's food safety system into law Tuesday.
It calls for more government regulation of the food you buy and eat and fewer recalls. It would be the most sweeping revamp of the nation's food safety system since the 1930s.
The provisions include more power to the FDA to pull tainted items from shelves instead of producers issuing recalls voluntarily, a tracing system to simplify finding the source of contamination in an outbreak, and requirements for importers to make sure the foods they bring in comply with U.S. guidelines.
The question remains, though, how the changes will be paid for and how long it will take to implement them.
