Law For Food: The law affects what you eat. What you buy to eat affects the law.


New Food Inspection Rules – Prelim

Filed under: FDA, Food Safety, Regulation

I’m not yet sure what I think about the new food inspection rules, primarily owing to the fact that I haven’t yet looked at them. The message seems to be that the new rules create “uniform” food inspections, but uniformity is useless unless the inspections are rigorous. Indeed it seems to me that more food-borne illness would be likely to be caught by the application of various inspection standards. Particularly where products from a single source are inspected in various locations, I should think that various inspection standards would reveal a fuller picture of food-borne illness risks. But I haven’t looked at the standards yet, so all of this may be moot. More later.
