    The FDA, themselves, said there were over 15,100 employees in 2010. Do you think they doubled in that year?

    As I learned in law school, considering the tonnage of food entering the country, much polluted seafood, the number of FDA inspectors is ridiculously low. Shame! Get Congress to prioritize and hire!
