FOOD SAFETY MAGAZINE - APRIL 2013 - FDA’s Changing Culture: What Every Food Company Needs to Know

Levitt and Veronica S. Knapp The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is undergoing a major culture change, and nowhere is that impact being felt more than in the food industry. This cultural change means that the practices that made food companies successful in the past may not be enough to make them successful today. Inspections FDA is conducting more domestic inspections than in recent years, completing more than 19,000 domestic facility inspections in 2011[1] (compared with approximately one-half that number 10 years ago), often in partnership with its counterpart state agencies. The demeanor of FDA personnel during inspections has changed as well. The impact of FDA’s culture change can be felt at the border and internationally as well.

FDA 01/08/12 Remarks at the Foods Program Science and Research Conference

Hamburg, M.D.2012 FDA Foods Program Science and Research ConferenceAugust 1, 2012 Thank you Dr. White for your gracious introduction – and for giving me this opportunity to welcome so many of our top food scientists to this Second Annual Foods Program Science and Research Conference. I think this is going to be an exceedingly worthwhile two-day event that will help us push forward on our critical mission to ensure the safety and quality of our nation’s food supply – from wherever it is grown, to however it is processed and stored, to wherever it is served. Protecting the safety and quality of our food supply is a cross-cutting endeavor that, when we fit all the pieces together, we call the Foods Program. Each brings to the table – and ultimately the American people’s kitchen table – its own research agenda, scientists and subject matter experts, specialized laboratories, policy analysts, and more.

They mean being proactive instead of being reactive. New law will empower FDA to improve safety of U.S. food: Act requires inspections, improves recalls. The nation’s much-anticipated strong new food safety law will grant a wide range of powers to the Food and Drug Administration, but some in the public health community are concerned that recent changes in Congress could mean some of the law’s initiatives will not be funded.

New law will empower FDA to improve safety of U.S. food: Act requires inspections, improves recalls

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, signed by President Barack Obama Jan. 4, requires food companies to write and test plans for the safe manufacture of food, gives FDA more control over food imports, and increases the number of inspections FDA must conduct of processing plants. It also gives FDA the power to order a mandatory recall of contaminated foods, which previously was handled voluntarily by manufacturers. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius called the act “the most significant food safety law of the last 100 years,” and said it would “bring food safety into the 21st century.”

Strategic Priorities 2011 - 2015' now available

Food and Drug Administration today released the final version of a strategic priorities document outlining the goals that will guide the agency and its 12,000 employees through 2015. “It’s no secret that the FDA’s responsibilities have increased significantly over the past several years,” said FDA Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D. Titled “Strategic Priorities 2011 – 2015: Responding to the Public Health Challenges of the 21st Century,” the 50-page document provides a vision of the FDA that includes: “Today, it is clear that the FDA’s job is fundamentally different – and far more complex than it was even a few years ago,” Hamburg said. “Science underlies everything we do,” Hamburg said.
