Food News


THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the FoodQuality.com on May 14, 2013.

FDA officials announced on May 5 that it would reconfigure its budget to avoid reducing inspections. An April 25 report that as many as 2,100 food inspections—or approximately 18% of the total conducted by the agency—would be eliminated this year as a result of the government sequester. Instead travel and training will be two of the targets for budget decreases that otherwise would have hit inspections.


The following news is from the FoodProductDesign.com on April 29, 2013.

FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg told the editorial board of USA TODAY that the sequester will delay the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) implementation of the 2-year-old Food Safety Modernization Act and result in fewer food-safety inspections.
