A bipartisan group of 15 U.S. Senators is asking Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to review food safety issues as the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, which he chairs, considers the sale of Smithfield Foods to Chinese meat processor Shuanghui International.

This merger may only make it more difficult to protect the food supply," said Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn.
