FDA Receives $50 million for FSMA
A compromise bill was recently passed giving U.S. FDA an additional $50 million in funding for 2012. While FDA sought significantly more funding, the results were better than expected in the current budgetary environment. With the growing responsibilities mandated by the Food Safety Modernization Act (“FSMA”), signed in to law January 4, 2011, the additional funds will go far in helping the FDA increase the frequency of inspections and support other FSMA-related activities.
