FDA’s New Intentional Adulteration Rules Based on the FSMA and Creating Food Fraud Compliance Systems

How do you know what you are buying, selling or eating is what you paid for? How do you know what you paid for has not been intentionally falsified or mislabeled? As international food transportation increases, food processors, distributors and consumers are purchasing more and more food from foreign countries often with little oversight or control over what is coming into supermarkets, restaurants and refrigerators. There are new laws being enacted that require food handlers, processors, retailers and restaurants to develop effective food fraud compliance systems.

This session by expert speaker Dr. John M. Ryan will explore the current state of food fraud, the laws being enacted to try to control it and the level of fraud currently in operation. The FDA has established new “intentional adulteration” rules based on the Food Safety Modernization Act and, based on international acknowledgement of the problem, other countries are enhancing their own import controls over illegal replacements.
