Others question what the FDA will finally put forward about traceability in its food safety regulations, seeking assurances that any investments in PTI will not be in vain. Find comments on the docket that consider the learnings from FDA’s pilot traceability projects.

In the end, Wal-Mart’s muscle may finally give PTI’s late-adopters the motivation to move.

But will it set a dangerous precedent? Shouldn’t the government alone dictate mandatory requirements for traceback? If not, what is the next imperative to come down from Bentonville, Ark.?

The SNL skit scene finally ends with the off-camera boys apparently getting off the shed, only to hear the injunction from Mom (Mariel Hemingway).

“Brandon and Michael, I need you to do me a favor and get out of the fountain. Be a buddy and get out of the fountain.”
