FDAs Failure Urges It to Reassess Its Policies

atabase for inspectors to assess.

The shift is to be more proactive, to put more focus on prevention, said David Acheson, the FDA's assistant commissioner for food protection, who is working closely with FDA Commissioner Andrew Von Eschenbach on a new plan to improve safety of both imported and domestic food.

Michael Doyle, director of University of Georgia's Center for Food Safety, said it would be "a major step forward" if the agency adopts the risk-management approach and converts to up-to-date screening and testing technologies, as originally proposed in the 2002 plan. "It sounds like the strategic plan is what's needed for the evolving situation that we see with the rapid increase in food imports," he said. "The longer the FDA waits to reorganize itself in addressing the issue of the day, the more difficult it will be for the agency to catch up to the problems of the future.

The FDA's moves come as Congress and the Bush administration are debating how to improve the safety of both imported and domestically produced food, amid the importation of contaminated pet food and tainted toothpaste from China. Earlier this year, the FDA, in the wake of last year's E. coli contamination of spinach, recommended tough regulations on the U.S. fresh-produce industry but was rebuffed by its parent agency, the Department of Health and Human Services. Now, under fire for not moving aggressively enough to protect the food supply, the administration seems to be more amenable to taking steps to beef up safety.
