@FDAfood

  • ·       #OUTBREAK OVER. @CDCgov announced that the outbreak related to various #tahini produced by Achdut, LTD of Ariel, Israel appears to be over. The U.S. FDA has concluded its investigation activities related to this outbreak.

@FDAanimalhealth

  • ·       FDA is an important partner in advancing promising agricultural biotechnology innovations.
  • ·       Gene editing in animals holds incredible promise for the future to improve animal health, provide a more plentiful and safe food supply, and even to help bring life-saving treatments to market. https://go.usa.gov/xyrVB
  • ·       FDA supports the development of beneficial products from animal gene editing, and is committed to streamlined, risk-based regulatory oversight. We want to make sure these products are safe and do what they claim, but also don’t have unintended effects.
  • ·       FDA does not regulate an animal as a drug, but instead our framework evaluates intentional genomic alternations (IGA)s in animals based upon the risk they pose to the animal and human health.
  • ·       As technology advances, we’ll continue to refine the risk based approach. For intentional genomic alterations in animals that have already been identified to pose minimal risk, we don’t intend to enforce investigational and approval requirements. https://go.usa.gov/xyrMF

@FrankYiannasFDA

@SecretarySonny

  • ·       At USDA we’re in the food business, from consumer to producer. We visited @ImpossibleFoods today to learn more about the opportunities, advancements and technologies of the food innovation space.

@FDAfood

  • ·       Drinking raw milk can cause some serious diseases. Know the facts about pasteurization, not the myths. http://go.usa.gov/xmMjN  #NationalDairyMonth
  • ·       #OUTBREAK OVER. @CDCgov announced that the outbreak related to Karawan #Tahini, El-Karawan Tahini, or Soco Tahini appears to be over. The U.S. FDA has concluded its investigation activities related to this outbreak.
  • ·       These products have a 2 year shelf life. Our recommendation, if you still have any of this tahini in your cabinets, do not eat and throw it away.

@FDA_ORA

  • ·       Debarment is an effective tool that FDA uses to protect the public because it prevents bad actors who are debarred from working in any capacity for firms whose work is regulated by FDA. I am Kenny Shade, #ORA’s debarment specialist. LEARN MORE: https://go.usa.gov/xmuVd  #IAmORA
