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.
George C. Ziobro
Dr. Ziobro has worked for the Food and Drug Administration for over 29 years. He is the FDA delegate to Codex
Alimentarius Committee on Spices and Culinary Herbs and one of the co-authors of the recent FDA white paper on spices.
While at the FDA he has developed and written FDA policies on how the Agency evaluates the significance of the presence of filth and extraneous materials in foods, evaluating these materials on their risk to human health instead of just as aesthetic or economic adulterants.
He has also served as the editor for chapter on the isolation of extraneous materials in the Official Methods of Analysis
of AOAC International 17th edition (2000) and 18th edition (2005).
