(CFSAN) The agency within the Food and Drug Administration responsible for developing and overseeing enforcement of food safety and quality regulations and coordinating FDA and states’ surveillance and compliance programs, among other activities. FDA’s roughly 800 field inspectors (located administratively within FDA’s Office of Regulatory Affairs) enforce CFSAN’s food safety regulations at 53,000 processing facilities. CFSN announced that its food safety priorities for 1999 include stepping up surveillance of imported fruits and vegetables, investigating the risk of Listeria, swiftly approving additives that can safeguard the nation’s food supply and adopting HACCP rules for manufacturers of fruit juices, seafood and shell eggs.
