The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now offering a Spanish version of its web-based training module, “ALERT: Food Defense Awareness”. The English version of this module was released in 2007, as part of the FDA’s new food defense awareness program, ALERT. ALERT identifies key points that industry and businesses can use to raise awareness of food defense issues and decrease the risk of intentional food contamination at various points from farm to table. The module can be used by FDA investigators, other federal, state and local regulatory agencies, and by industry stakeholders, from growers to retail.
For questions regarding the ALERT program or the web-based training module, please contact Marion Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-436-1584.
