FDA Expands Food Safety Collaboration With Mexico

JAMA. 2020;324(19):1934. doi:10.1001/jama.2020.21458

Building on a partnership signed in 2014, the FDA and its counterparts in Mexico have agreed to expand collaborative food safety efforts to cover all human food, rather than just produce, that crosses the border.

Under a statement of intent, the FDA and 2 Mexican agencies—the Federal Commission for the Protection from Sanitary Risks and the National Service of Agro-Alimentary Health, Safety and Quality—will work on adapting new technologies to prevent and trace foodborne illness outbreaks as well as collaborate with other entities including academia, consumer groups, and the private sector.
