The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced it will continue to accept public comments on the first installment of the three-part draft Intentional Adulteration (IA) rule guidance during the comment period for the second installment of the draft guidance. The public comment deadline for the first installment of the draft guidance is December 17, 2018. The first installment of the guidance, released in June, is intended to help food facilities that manufacture, process, pack or hold food develop and implement components of a food defense plan. The second installment will be issued in early 2019, with FDA allowing 120 days to receive comments on both draft guidance documents. Larger businesses are required to comply with the IA rule by July 26, 2019.
