After an audit found that a Michigan food safety inspection agency took too long to perform inspections, state regulators are attempting to explain the delay. The Governor's administration acknowledges the delays but maintains that no laws were broken. Jaime Clover Adams, Eirector of the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, said,
"We didn't miss the mark on high-risk stuff. At no time have we lost control of the food safety system in the state or put the consumer at risk."
