U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) is fighting to keep harmful contaminants out of the food supply by supporting food safety inspections by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) on foreign and domestic catfish.

“Catfish farming is an important industry to Arkansas. Arkansas producers are proud to supply a safe product for American consumers. The bottom line is that our farmers aren't afraid of competition. They just want the security to know that the domestic industry and imports are safe,” Boozman said on the Senate floor in support of the USDA Catfish Inspection Program.
