A week after the Agriculture Department announced wider testing for deadly E. coli in meat, Republican Presidential candidate and science skeptic Representative Michele Bachmann said that regulations are overburdening food producers.

Rep. Bachmann visited a 140-year-old meatpacking plant in Des Moines and railed against regulations for food makers and other businesses. In keeping with the ethics of her party, Rep. Bachmann did not name any specific regulations she would cut.

The Agriculture Department, meanwhile, said expanding testing of E. coli in meat from one strain to seven would hasten recalls of tainted products and help officials find foodborne illnesses.
