"In todays world, were all being more cautious as we go about our daily routines. And, this caution should also extend to the care we take when we shop for and prepare foods. The deliberate tampering of food to cause major disease outbreaks is rare, particularly in the United States. However, recent news events have focused attention on the increasing possibility of such tampering. As a result, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is enhancing its surveillance of foodborne disease and increasing the inspection of domestic and foreign food processing plants. The food industry is also stepping up safety measures to ensure that its products are produced as safely as possible." This report investigates many of the warnings involving food tampering within the United States, as well as best practices to keeping others safe in cases of contamination.
