FILE - In this Nov. 12, 2010 file photo, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., speaks in Missoula, Mont. The Food and Drug Administration would have to step up inspections of food processors under legislation the Senate is expected to pass this week. The bill, which has stalled in that chamber for more than a year, would give the FDA authority to order a recall of tainted products. Today, the agency must negotiate with sellers of tainted food to do a voluntary recall. The bill would also require food manufacturers and farms to follow stricter standards to keep food safe. less
