The Center for Science in the Public Interest has released its list of "Ten Riskiest Foods Regulated by the FDA."  The list has gotten a lot of publicity, particularly because some unexpected foods like potatoes made the list. 

Our friend Jim Prevor, the Perishable Pundit, has written a Special Edition of his newsletter that pretty much says everything about the list that we would say, so I’m just linking to his article.  The only thing I’d add is that Stoel Rives were co-sponsors of the conference he mentions in the article, along with Bill Marler.  Otherwise, thanks for doing the good work, Jim. 

UPDATE:  Being the total gentleman that he is, within hours of Friday’s post Jim emailed me that he would add a credit to Stoel Rives on his entry.  And of course he did.
