CLOSING KEYNOTE: US FOOD SAFETY REGULATION IN USA

Insights on key FDA initiatives

  • Whole Genome Sequencing has revolutionized CDC and FDA disease attribution capabilities.  With better detection comes more outbreaks. 
  • The FDA is developing prevention strategies for food categories with recurrent attribution to disease.  These prevention strategies are an opportunity for all stakeholders to focus on prevention in that category.  
  • The FDA is ramping up to conduct Root Cause Analysis following foodborne illness outbreaks.  Our reports will communicate what we learn to help firms prevent a recurrence.
