The Food and Drug Administration has announced a new strategy describing how it is integrating new and existing import oversight tools as part of a comprehensive approach to food safety.
According to the FDA, the U.S. imports about 15 percent of its overall food supply. More than 200 countries or territories and roughly 125,000 food facilities and farms supply about 32 percent of the fresh vegetables, 55 percent of the fresh fruit, and 94 percent of the seafood consumed annually in the U.S. In 2019, between 14 and 15 million shipments of imported food are expected to enter the U.S.
