I am committed to upholding and executing this framework guided by the principle of protecting and promoting the health and wellness of all U.S. consumers. We’ll start driving towards this goal by focusing our efforts on three priority areas: preventing foodborne illness, decreasing diet-related chronic disease through improved nutrition, and safeguarding the food supply through the safe use of chemicals and dietary supplements.”
