*The Bureau of Food Laboratories maintains A2LA accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 for the specific tests listed in A2LA certificates 2534.01 and 2534.02


Sampling program overview
Sampling Program - Overview

  • Regular meetings between lab and inspection staff to develop surveillance sampling plan

  • Samples are collected for many reasons:

    • Surveillance

    • Follow-up due to prior adulterated/ misbranded

    • Inspection indicate need for collection

    • Consumer complaints

    • FBI investigation

    • Environmental samples for food contract

    • Other


Sampling program overview1
Sampling Program - Overview

  • All samples input into our food inspection database (FIMS)

  • FIMS communicates with laboratory management system (FSLIMS)

  • Laboratory receives sample and pulls sample information from FIMS to FSLIMS

  • Laboratory runs analyses

  • Results input into FIMS/ FSLIMS



Fims sample collection
FIMS Sample Collection

  • Laboratories notifies inspections staff of priority sample results

  • Violative sample results appear as alert on FIMS dashboard

  • Laboratory liaison coordinates compliance actions




Sample statistics fy 2011 2012
Sample Statistics(FY 2011 - 2012)

  • Total number of samples collected: 10,270

    • 6,512 regulatory samples

    • 2,470 USDA MDP

    • 1,288 Others

  • Number of analysis performed: 41,370

  • Adulterated/Misbranded: 496

    • Compliance Rate: 92.38%


Types of samples
Types of Samples

  • Routine/Survey Finished Product

  • Environmental Swabs

  • Electronic (pictures)

  • FoodborneIllness


Survey samples
Survey Samples

  • Plan developed in conjunction with laboratory and inspections

    • Quarterly meeting to discuss needs, capabilities, projects, etc

    • Agree on samples types, and amounts, and create draft plan

    • Final review and dissemination to district supervisors



Environmental samples
Environmental Samples

  • FDA Contract

    • 200 samples total per year

      • Split as 100 samples X 2 events

  • Generally conduct at a firm tied to an adulterated product

  • Requires prior coordination with laboratory

  • Performed by RRT members under ICS


Environmental sampling
Environmental Sampling
