Governmental Agencies

Government agencies at the federal, state, and local level play a role in food inspection and regulation. We discussed the government regulation of food animals in Chapter 7, including the roles of the USDA and state departments of agriculture. In this chapter, we discuss the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which has the responsibility for safety of food and drugs, and provide additional information on the role of state departments of agriculture relevant to monitoring of the food supply.
