FDA food safety inspections and enforcement declining, auditors say

The Department of Health and Human Services’ inspector general said that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had inspected fewer than half of the 51,229 domestic food facilities subject to inspection from 2004 to 2008. Less than a quarter were inspected each year, and the number of inspections declined during the period, even as the number of food facilities increased. More detail: www.foodnavigator-usa.com
