swine o'clock Jan 31, 2023

🇺🇲 Frank Yiannas, the FDA deputy commissioner of the Office of Food Policy and Response, announced he will be leaving the agency on Feb. 24 after having served for five years. He recommended that the FDA create a deputy commission for food with direct oversight over those responsible for human and animal food. 

     • The only reason why he didn’t resign earlier was to address a crisis related to Abbott Laboratories infant formula factory plant. The company is now facing a criminal investigation after the formula was linked to the death of two infants.
