Tucker guest rails against FDA after food processing plant disasters: ‘Abandoned their food obligations’

In the wake of a disturbing string of fires at food processing plants across the nation, radio show host Vince Coglianese alleged that Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials have “abandoned their food obligations to the United States.”

“They’re so obsessed with drugs, they’ve abandoned their food obligations to the United States,” Coglianese told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson. “And the nation’s food supply becomes imperiled by those actions. So, whatever is happening here, there’s negligence.”

Carlson led the Friday night segment with three concerning facts: In the last month, more than a dozen food processing plants in the nation have been “disabled by freak events,” “more than 27 million chickens and turkeys in this country have been destroyed” by a new avian virus, and China “has been buying up 200,000 acres at least of U.S. farmland.”

“We’re not saying all these things are connected,” said Carlson, “but we are saying their effect is the same — a threat to our food supply.”

As BizPac Review reported, some 18 U.S. food processing plants have reportedly caught fire in the last six months, including an Oregon potato chip plant, the JBS beef plant in Nebraska, and the Bonanza Meat Co. in El Paso, Texas. In addition, two plants were hit by small planes, including the General Mills plant in Georgia.

And all the suspicious destruction comes as President Joe Biden warns that food shortages in America are “gonna be real.”

“What is going on here?” Carlson asked.

“This is the obligation of the Biden Administration to answer,” said Coglianese. “A couple questions I would put forward to Joe Biden — and, of course, he will blame Vladimir Putin, but the real answers involve something domestic — How many of these events have occurred? How much of the nation’s food supply depends on the plants that were disabled? How much has this increased the costs of the food products you are buying in your supermarket?”

“Is Joe Biden himself even aware of this?” Coglianese asked. “These are legitimate questions.”

Coglianese cited a recent report from Politico, in which former FDA commissioner Stephen Ostroff  stated, “The food program is on the back burner.”

“There are a lot of things that languish,” said Ostroff. “There’s nobody really pushing very hard to get them done in the same way that you’re pushing very hard to get the Covid vaccines out there and authorized. We don’t have that imperative and that pressure to actually make things happen on the food side of the Food and Drug Administration.”

All the FDA’s attention, money, and resources said Coglianese, are “in pushing the vaccines into people’s arms.”

“I think they’ve done enough for Pfizer’s share price,” responded Carlson. “Let’s move on to protecting the population.”

Food shortages, famine, and likely violence are all things the entire world needs to prepare for, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

As of last week, the IMF “is warning that the world must brace for a significant economic slowdown, explosive inflation, and potential violent societal unrest due to skyrocketing energy and food prices as famine and depression loom in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine,” BizPac Review reported.
