Title: Tales From The Trenches- Filth and Adulteration in the Food Supply and How to Prevent it

The heart of food regulation under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act are theses two simply lines, “402(a) A food shall be considered adulterated: 3) if it consists in whole or in part of any filthy, putrid, or decomposed substance, or if it is otherwise unfit for food; or (4) if it has been prepared, packed, or held under insanitary conditions whereby it may have become contaminated with filth, or whereby it may have been rendered injurious to health.”
Science isn’t the only tool that the FDA uses in its enforcement of the Act. At times,FDA scientists must think “outside the box” to protect the American people from adulterated foods. This talk will discuss some of the “outside the box” approaches I have used in my close to 30 years at the FDA.
