Late this afternoon I learned that Secretary of Health and Human Services Michael Leavitt and FDA Commissioner Dr. Andrew C. von Eschenbach will tour the Schnucks in Bridgeton tomorrow morning. Their visit is part of a fact-finding mission for the food-safety panel that President Bush created last month. Leading the tour will be Schnucks Chairman and CEO Scott Schnuck and Director of Food Safety Dianna Pasley.
Should be interesting. I'll let you know what transpires.
