@FDACommissioner

  • ·        It’s time to look to the future of food safety again, w/ a view that builds on the progress we’re making w/ our regulatory framework, but also leverages the use of new & emerging tech. @FrankYiannasFDA & I are announcing a “New Era of Smarter Food Safety” https://go.usa.gov/xmXEp 
  • ·        To kick off this new focus, #FDA intends to develop a “Blueprint for a New Era of Smarter Food Safety” that will address several areas, including traceability, digital technologies & evolving food business models. We’ll also hold a public meeting to seek input & share ideas.
  • ·        We know that we cannot embark upon this journey alone and, to be successful, it’s equally important for food companies of all sizes and technology firms, as well as local and federal agencies and other stakeholders, to join us in this effort.

  • ·        [*retweet @AJMC_Journal*] In first speech since stepping down as #FDA commissioner, @ScottGottliebMD reflects on agency's push for innovation http://bit.ly/2XWI2AK 
  • ·        Reminder on why food safety professionals should master both food science & behavioral science. Information does not equal behavior change. It’s more complex than that. Food Safety = Behavior. https://www.wdsu.com/article/cdc-tweets-not-to-wash-chicken-causes-online-debate/27324744
  • ·        [*retweet @lucasmearian*] FDA to pilot A.I., consider blockchain, to track and trace food https://www.computerworld.com/article/3391565/fda-to-pilot-ai-consider-blockchain-to-track-and-trace-food.html … via @computerworld #FDA #groceries #produce #supplychain #blockchain #ai

  • ·        THREAD: Excited to announce #FDA’s “New Era of Smarter Food Safety” that is people-led, FSMA-based & technology-enabled! It’s focused on building upon on the progress we’re making while also leveraging new/emerging technology. Statement w/@FDACommissioner https://go.usa.gov/xmXEp 
  • ·        As part of this effort, pleased to share that @US_FDA intends to develop a “Blueprint for a New Era of Smarter Food Safety.” It will augment FSMA implementation efforts, address traceability, digital technologies, evolving food business models & discuss areas for collaboration.
  • ·        Today, we’re also sharing that @US_FDA plans to conduct a new pilot that will leverage artificial intelligence & machine learning to explore new ways to enhance the agency’s review of imported foods at ports of entry to ensure they meet U.S. food safety standards.
  • ·        It’s important for food companies of all sizes, technology firms, local & federal agencies and other stakeholders to join us. That’s why we’re excited about holding a public meeting later this year to learn more about what others are doing to create a smarter, safer food system.
  • ·        Ultimately, for our journey toward a new era of smarter food safety to be a success, all those involved in making food products available to consumers must walk in lockstep on this path. Together, we CAN create a safer, smarter, & more traceable food system.

@SecretarySonny

  • ·        Sat down with the @WSJ for the Global Food Forum at @USDA today to discuss how harnessing innovation and precision ag will continue to clothe and feed the world for generations to come.
