The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published guidance to aid operators of food importing establishments, storage warehouses and filers. It identifies the kinds of preventive measures that those facilities may take to minimize the risk that food under their control will be subject to tampering or other malicious, criminal or terrorist actions. The guidance is designed to focus operator's attention sequentially on each segment of the food delivery system that is within their control, to minimize their risk of tampering or other malicious, criminal or terrorist action at each segment. To be successful, FDA suggests, implementing enhanced preventive measures requires the commitment of management and staff. Accordingly, FDA recommends that both management and staff participate in the development and review of such measures. To view the guidance document, click here. (Source: FEMA)
