FDA's First Year Report on the Reportable Food Registry

The Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) report on the first year of the Reportable Food Registry states that the data, "represent an important tool for targeting inspection resources, bringing high risk commodities into focus, and driving positive change in industry practices–all of which will better protect the public health." Commodities that feature prominently in the Reportable Food Registry will receive additional FDA attention because the Food Safety Modernization Act mandates risk-based allocation of FDA resources.
