U.S. Senator Charles Schumer on Tuesday toured Cornell University and urged the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to partner with the university on a national scale in a joint effort to boost research and training programs for dairy safety and quality.

He wants to make Cornell University a national example in dairy safety techniques.

With its excellent research department, Cornell has the ability to research foodborne illnesses and worker safety concerns.
