Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) was critical of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) at a Capitol Hill news conference in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, saying that “our food system today is broken” and that “the TPP will make matters even worse.”
“Importing countries do not have to meet U.S domestic standards or the equivalent,” said DeLauro. “So we should not be surprised that a recent consumer report found that 60 percent of shrimp and samples purchased at American grocery stores contained at least one type of harmful bacteria. Frankly, our food system today is broken, and my colleagues and I are deeply concerned that the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will make matters even worse.”
