Secretary of Food, not Agriculture?

The Consumers Union of the United States says that Secretary of Agriculture designate Tom Vilsack needs a new job title, Secretary of Food.

“More than 65 per cent of the Department of Agriculture’s budget relates to food consumption, not production,” stated a consumers union press release issued in December after President-elect Barack Obama named former Iowa governor Vilsack to the top ag job in the United States.
