GAO was requested to review S. 1442, entitled Food Safety Amendments of 1981, which is intended to revise and update the Nation's food safety laws. In conjunction with that request, GAO also reviewed issues relating to the Delaney Clause and alternatives to regulating food additives which may cause cancer. GAO concluded that Congress should examine the continued appropriateness of the Delaney Clause because of: (1) advances in the ability of analytical detection methods to identify substances at very low levels; (2) uncertainties about the human risk from low levels of carcinogens; and (3) the inflexibility that exists under current laws.
