FDA Is Resuming Domestic Inspections With New Risk Assessment System

The FDA is resuming domestic inspections with a new risk assessment system during the coronavirus pandemic. Inspections were suspended in March 2020 as the pandemic was just starting. FDA inspectors have still "conducted mission critical inspections," as they put it, even though regular inspections were suspended. The agency continued to maintain reviews of consumer products, especially those related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including hand sanitizers made with methanol and diagnostic tests that were making potentially false claims. The FDA has developed a rating system to let inspectors know when and where prioritized domestic inspections can begin. It's called the COVID-19 Advisory Rating System and uses real time data to assess the number of COVID-19 cases in a local area … [Read more...]

Center For Food Safety Challenges New Swine Inspection System

Center for Food Safety (CFS) is challenging the USDA's new swine inspection program with a lawsuit filed earlier this month. That agency, along with Food & Water Watch, is suing the USDA, stating that new rules about pork safety inspection in slaughter plants are dangerous for employees, consumers, and the animals themselves. The New Swine Inspection System (NSIS) lets corporation employees inspect the carcasses themselves instead of using federal inspectors, and also surrenders federal control over removing contamination from carcasses "without any minimum training requirements for slaughter-plant employees," according to CFS. This is a reversal to the swine slaughter inspection system that was put in place in the United States in 1906, when the Pure Food and Drug Act was … [Read more...]

USDA’s Catfish Inspection Program Stops Unsafe Shipment

A press release from Food & Water Watch states that last week, USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) stopped more than 40,000 pounds of unsafe catfish products from being imported into the United States from Vietnam. The shipment tested positive for malachite green, a drug that is banned for use in food animals in this country because it is potentially carcinogenic. That compound is used in farm fisheries as an anti fungal agent and an antimicrobial.
