Understanding the way the FDA works in handling food imports

The FDA’s task is cut out when it comes to one of its core functions –that of regulating imports. With the US economy absorbing food imports to the tune of $ 49 billion every year and with its allied regulatory agencies overseeing an astronomical number of nearly half a million facilities in the US and abroad; the FDA is certainly in a most unenviable position.

In view of the fact that these foods are imported from almost all over the world to be sold into the US market; the FDA has strict regulations for ensuring the quality of the food items that enter the US market. Its primary task is to ensure that the foods and food products that enter the US market met the rigorous standards it sets in relation to safety, sanitation, wholesomeness and labeling.

Coordination with agencies across the country

Considering this fact, plus the fact that over two thirds of seafood and more than a third of all the food items consumed in the US are imported; it is no surprise that the FDA has a varied number of agencies with which it coordinates and whose help it takes to carry out its functions. These are some of them:

  • Homeland Security                              12662901_f520
  • Customs and Border Protection
  • The FDA and the USDA
  • Center for Disease Control
  • Food Safety Inspection Service
  • Agricultural and Marketing Services
  • Food and Nutrition Services
  • The U.S. Department of Commerce
  • Department of Defense, and
  • The Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
