Protecting the Food Supply from Intentional Adulteration: An Introductory Training Session to Raise Awareness

Meeting & Events
To help reduce the risk of an attack on the food supply, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have joined forces to provide a food security awareness training program.

The training targets individuals who play an important role in defending our nation's food from attack: Federal, State, local, and tribal food-industry regulators, school food authorities, and nutrition assistance program operators and administrators. Representatives from the food industry and individuals essential in responding to a food emergency due to an intentional attack-such as law enforcement, public health, and homeland security officials-are also encouraged to participate.
The program, which was developed jointly by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service, Food and Nutrition Service, and Agricultural Marketing Service and HHS' Food and Drug Administration, is available to any interested individuals free of charge through a Food and Drug Administration Web site. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available through the FDA Web site for FDA, State, local and tribal regulators who successfully complete the course.

Online Course
The online course is being hosted by FDA at the following Web site: http://www.fda.gov/ora/training/orau/FoodSecurity/default.htm. It is available worldwide at that site free of charge to anyone interested in learning more about food security. Please contact Sebastian Cianci at (301) 436-2291 or Sebastian.Cianci@cfsan.fda.gov for more information.
