Gov. Ed Rendell has announced the formation of the new Governor's Food Safety Council to provide better oversight of Pennsylvania's food supply from the field to the dinner table.
The council will focus on food safety, with members advising the governor on "direction for security protocols and practices at all stages of the food supply," according to a release from the governor's office.
The council will also help facilitate coordination among federal, regional, state and local efforts.
