Fact Sheets

As the nation’s food supply becomes more global and complex, decisions about policies aimed at preventing contamination and illness have become even more important to the public’s health. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses risk analysis, a concept and framework fostered by the World Health Organization, to ensure that regulatory decisions about foods are science-based and transparent.

Read more about how FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) applies risk analysis, from conventional methods to new, far-reaching tools that use advanced technology to prioritize risks and calculate optimal interventions at Risk Analysis at FDA: Food Safety.
