Nevertheless, these certainties do not produce coherent acting and policies since neo-liberal logic prevents the State to interfere with market rules. Along with the issue of hanger the dependence of many Latin American countries with regard to food supply becomes stronger, so producing a real food uncertainty. In this context it would be wise to consider the problem of food safety as an ethical issue within the perspective of common good in order to react adequately and timely
