FSMA’s Intentional Adulteration Rule

On March 5, 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published the second installment of the draft guidance document designed to support compliance with the Intentional Adulteration (IA) Rule under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

The FSMA’s final rule on intentional adulteration addresses hazards which may be intentionally introduced to foods, (including by acts of terrorism), with the intent to cause wide-spread harm to public health. Processing facilities covered by the rule are required to develop and implement a food defense plan that identifies vulnerabilities and mitigation strategies for those vulnerabilities. The first compliance date for large facilities is July 2019.
