CFSAN’s New Senior Science Advisor Will Work to Advance Produce Safety
February 5, 2018
Jim Gorny has returned to FDA, where he was a food safety expert at a critical time in the agency’s efforts to enhance produce safety. He left the agency five years ago to work on food safety from another perspective, as vice president of food safety and technology at the Produce Marketing Association, a trade organization representing the entire produce supply chain.
Dr. Gorny is back at the FDA to, among other responsibilities, work alongside a dedicated team of produce safety experts on the implementation of new science and risk-based requirements created to help prevent illnesses caused by contaminated produce.
He is taking on a newly created position at FDA – Senior Science Advisor for Produce Safety at FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN). He shares his thoughts on his new role and the opportunities ahead as the requirements of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule transition from theory to practice.
