A report released by the Congressional Research Service says that Americans have the right to demand that Congress enact a comprehensive food safety and food-safety act.
The report says that the bill would help Americans fight the spread of foodborne illnesses and that it would give states the ability to enact safety standards for food produced in their jurisdictions.
The bill would also expand federal oversight over food manufacturing and food packaging.
In its recommendations, the CRS calls for the creation of a Food Safety and Safety Commission that would oversee food safety, including ensuring food is properly labeled and labeled properly at every step of the process.
A new rule would require food manufacturers to report the ingredients of their products to the federal government.
And the CSR calls for increased federal funding for research on the causes of food-borne illnesses.
The CRS report was released just a day after President Donald Trump announced he was signing the Food Safety Modernization Act.
The Trump administration announced the new law earlier this week.
The new law would require federal food safety regulators to conduct inspections of food facilities and require food labeling for every food product sold in the United States.
It would also make it a federal crime to manufacture, transport, ship, prepare, or distribute food containing ingredients that are harmful to human health.
It also would increase penalties for those who knowingly violate federal food regulations.
Trump’s executive order also called for new regulations to help make sure the country is safe from food-related diseases, including foodborne outbreaks.
“President Trump has already taken action to improve food safety across the country,” Rep. Joe Kennedy, D-Mass., said in a statement.
“This is the right thing to do for America, and it will put Americans at greater risk.”
