.

The United States has the best food

production, processing and inspection

systems in the world.

However, the system is not perfect.

Continual

Threats!

Listeria

monocytogenes

Salmonella

Campylobacter

E. coli O157:H7

Food safety continues to

be a serious matter.

USDA’s Responsibility

Jurisdiction over products that generate more than $120 billion in sales annually.

slide5

Inspections of Food Animals and Egg Products Per Year

*

39 million cattle and calves

97 million swine

3.5 million sheep and lambs

8 BILLION poultry and fowl

3.2 BILLION pounds of liquid egg products

3.8 BILLION pounds of imported product re-inspected

* Graph is not drawn to scale.

slide6

FSIS has a dedicated and diverse workforce

that vigilantly protects the meat, poultry

and egg products supply.

An inspection force of more than 7,600 deployed throughout the

United States

Inspectors present

at various import

stations every

day

Inspectors present in

6,400 plants every day

“Farm-to-Table” Continuum:

safeguarding the nation’s food supply

slide8

“Enhancing Public Health:

Strategies for the Future”

  • Enhanced inspector training
  • Food safety technologies – new review staff, refine guidance
  • USDA food safety risk assessment coordination
  • Coordination of food safety research agenda
  • Best practices for animal production
  • Microbiological baseline studies

Re-assessment Of Plant

HACCP Plans

 FSIS Consumer Safety Officers started reviewing re-assessments in large and small plants this winter.

 Re-assessments for very small plants began April 21, 2003.

We are holding industry, and ourselves, responsible

for successfully operating under the pathogen reduction/HACCP rule

slide11

Significant Steps Have Been Taken to Improve the Technical and Scientific Knowledge of Our Inspectors

Federal, state and local inspectors are equipped with greater knowledge and understanding of how to protect the public.

USDA-FSIS Food Safety Strategy

Up-to-date Science

Well-trained and dedicated inspectors

Practical Solutions

slide15

Improving Food Safety

Step #1

Enhanced Data Integration

  • Anticipation and prediction of food safety risks through enhanced data integration
  • Analysis of FSIS regulatory sampling data as well as data to detect trends and identify connections between persistence, prevalence and other factors such as plant practices and seasonality.

Inspection and Enforcement

Laboratory Data

slide16

Improving Food Safety

Step #2

Risk-based Regulatory and Enforcement Activities

Science dictates our food safety programs.

A strong science infrastructure at FSIS allows for science-based policy making.

We operate under different models and sometimes are required to change policy as new crises emerge.

slide17

Improving Food Safety

Step #3

Associate Program Outcomes to Public Health Surveillance Data

Protecting the public’s meat, poultry and egg products is the purpose of the

Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Step #4

Improving Food Safety Beyond our Borders

USDA Animal and Plant Health Service

slide19

We all play a part in ensuring the

food on American tables is safe.
