An in-depth study of FDA Food Advisory and Food Recall Procedures has been issued by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). This is timely information since Congress is considering adding a Recall Insurance Product to the Farm Insurance Programs managed by USDA Risk Management Agency (RMA). We can also look for forthcoming changes to Chapter 7 of the FDA Regulatory Procedures Manual (Recalls) and to possible passage of the 2012 Farm Bill with this important amendment. (See our July 16 post on the Feinstein-Chambliss Amendment in the Senate and the Cardoza Amendment in the House.)


The Report (GAO-12-589, July 2012) is posted below:
