Food Defense: How to Comply with FSMA’s New Intentional Adulteration Rule


Learn about FSMA’s Intentional Adulteration rule, what it means for your facility, and how to build your food defense plan to comply

FSMA’s Intentional Adulteration final rule was published in May 2016. Also referred to as the “food defense rule,” it is intended to protect the food supply from potential large-scale public harm that could threaten consumers and put your bottom line at risk. The rule requires facilities to create a written food defense plan in which they must identify areas of their operation vulnerable to intentional adulteration and devise strategies to mitigate that risk.

Do you have a robust food defense plan in place? View our webinar to learn about the final rule, what it means for your facility, and how to build your food defense plan to comply.

Key Takeaways:

  • Adopt your food defense plan now so you will be prepared to implement when FDA begins enforcement in the next 3 years
  • Your food defense plan must include written vulnerability assessments, mitigation strategies, monitoring procedures, corrective action plans, and procedures for food defense verification
  • Employees are your best defenders: establish a culture of trust and a “see something, say something” policy
  • It is extremely important to develop employees’ behavioral skills so that they know what to do if an intentional adulteration event takes place
