Food Defense Tools
FDA has developed several tools for the food industry to help protect our nation’s food supply from deliberate acts of contamination or tampering.
These tools may assist in meeting the requirements of the Mitigation Strategies to Prevent Food Against Intentional Adulteration regulation (21 CFR Part 121) (IA rule).
Food Defense Plan Builder
The Food Defense Plan Builder (FDPB) version 2.0 is a user-friendly tool designed to help owners and operators of a food facility in the development of a food defense plan.
Mitigation Strategies Database
This database provides a range of preventive measures that companies may choose to implement to better protect their facility, personnel, products, and operations.
The Food Related Emergency Exercise Bundle (FREE-B) is a compilation of scenarios based on both intentional and unintentional food contamination events.
