Last week, the Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN) updated its “What We Eat In America-Food Commodity Intake Database" (WWEIA-FCID). JIFSAN used the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) latest updates to include more relevant and recent food consumption data on its FoodRisk.org website.
Foodrisk.org's Food Commodity Intake Database (http://fcid.foodrisk.org) is in the process of being updated to the 2005-2010 dataset, set to launch later this year.
Applications should be submitted by March 15, 2014
The U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced today that it has partnered with the Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN) at the University of Maryland to offer a training module for aquaculture producers to help them comply with FDA regulations for importing seafood.
In October, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) launched iRISK, a free Web-based system that enables users to rank and compare risks from multiple foodborne microbial and chemical hazards and predict effectiveness of prevention and control measures. A recording of an introductory webinar hosted by JIFSAN and presented on October 4 is available.
The webinar recordings are now publicly available on YouTube.
