Understand if your business is categorized as very small or small in Appendix 3: Determination of Status as a Very Small Businesses or Small Businesses Under Part 121: Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration.

Circumstances When an Improperly Implemented Mitigation Strategy May Be the Result of a Potential Intentional Adulteration Event. FDA has included information on what may be required if a facility suspects Intentional Adulteration has or may have occurred. This is included in Chapter 5, Section D. Within this section FDA states: “Intentional adulteration of food requires more than an opportunity for a contamination event. It also requires a person with intent to cause harm, attacking the food at the point where the mitigation strategy was not properly implemented at the time it was not properly implemented.”

More scenarios and examples for Food Defense Corrective Actions and Food Defense Verification Activities have been included.
