I don't know about you guys but I think Del Monte has a good case on their hands.

I also think that this is a very sticky grey area. Public safety is a valid and a very real concern in situations like this.

So although there is a good chance that Del Monte could win some compensation for what happened, I still can't be critical of how the FDA acted. Better be safe then sorry.

From FDA's point of view, being forced to pay compensation is infinitely better then facing criminal action for negligence.

Blame it on Grover Norquist. If his lockstep Republicans would desist from trying to starve the federal government, maybe the FDA could conduct more thorough investigations. Failing that, the default response must be in favor of food safety.
