The Food and Drug Administration continues its investigation in what caused a nationwide salmonella outbreak that's prompting a massive egg recall.
Some are blaming the government for not doing enough to protect consumers.
Last week alone, more than a half-billon eggs were recalled.
A spokesperson for the Consumer Federation of America blames limited resources and an outdated inspection system for repeated food contamination.
He says the FDA doesn't have the authority to prevent the outbreaks.
They can only react to them after the fact.
The House passed legislation a year ago that would allow the FDA to inspect plants more often, but the Senate has yet to schedule a vote.
