New Federal Food Safety Agency under plan for improved Food Safety in US

New Federal Food Safety Agency under plan for improved Food Safety in US

To provide better food safety to the country and improve efficiency for stakeholders Trump’s administration is planning a new Federal Food Safety Agency as they refers to the current U.S. food safety system as “duplicative.”
For example: while FSIS has regulatory responsibility for the safety of liquid eggs, FDA has regulatory responsibility for the safety of eggs while they are inside of their shells; FDA regulates cheese pizza, but if there is pepperoni on top, it falls under the jurisdiction of FSIS; FDA regulates closed-faced meat sandwiches, while FSIS regulates open-faced meat sandwiches.

So as to deal with this uneven division administration felt the need of consolidating FSIS and the food safety functions of the FDA into a single agency within USDA called the Federal Food Safety Agency.

The new Federal Food Safety Agency would be based on following Agenda:

• Strong enforcement and recall mechanisms.
• science-based food safety regulatory system

The Agency would be serving as the central point for coordinating with State and local bodies and food safety stakeholders.
