Food Defense is the effort to protect the food supply against intentional contamination due to sabotage, terrorism, counterfeiting, or other illegal, intentionally harmful means. Potential contaminants include biological, chemical and radiological hazards that are generally not found in foods or their production environment. Food defense differs from food safety, which is the effort to prevent unintentional contamination of food products by agents reasonably likely to occur in the food supply (e.g., E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria)."
"Currently, food defense plans are voluntary. However, FDA encourages all food facilities to develop and implement a food defense plan. A food defense plan will help you maintain a safe working environment for your employees, provide a quality product to your customers, and protect your bottom line. "
