The FSMA's Intentional Adulteration Rule requires food-producers to create a proactive Food Defense plan or risk hefty fines, shutdowns, and even jail time. Compliance dates vary (based on the size of the producer) and go into effect beginning in July 2019.

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.
