Under the Microscope: Food Industry Sees Increase in FDA Inspections

Food safety is an important issue. About 128,000 people are hospitalized every year due to a foodborne illness, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Regulatory bodies, therefore, continue to adopt stricter measures to ensure compliance with food safety regulations and guidelines.

In the last few years, the FDA has increased efforts to reduce the number of food safety incidents. The most prominent move was the enactment of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), signed into law in 2011. More recently, the FDA aims to increase domestic and foreign inspections of regulated products.
