Food Safety News published a piece with condemnation by leaders from a group of consumer and industry organizations that unanimously rejected FDA Commissioner Robert Califf's plan of restructuring of FDA. While Califf's plan includes creating that post, it continues to have three separate divisions reporting directly to the FDA commissioner, continuing the silo and matrix situation that the industry and consumer groups say endangers the public in terms of food safety. Some feel that Califf is choosing to go with the status quo. The plan does not create an empowered deputy commissioner of foods and fails to give that post the ability to take control of and responsibility for the food side of the agency. The job description for the deputy commissioner post will make it impossible to recruit anyone qualified for the job because it is an impotent job. The plan proposed lacks any urgency.
