Omnivore - Ginseng? We don't need no stinkin' ginseng

U.S. Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana has written letters to President Bush and the head of the FDA demanding a crackdown on food and medicine imports, particularly from China. Currently, the FDA inspects less than 2 percent of all imports, creating a gap through which terrorists could slip deadly poisons. Ezra Klein's website has the details, plus more updates about food safety.

The New York Times (subscription-only) has created a game, "Food Import Folly," that allows you, the imperiled consumer, "to protect the country from contaminants in foreign food imports using extremely limited resources."
