first_img The FDA has extended the public comment period on the prior notice interim final rule through July 13, Dr. Lester M. Crawford, acting FDA commissioner, told the health subcommittee Jun 25. The final rule will be published in March 2005. Historically, the FDA inspected less than 1% of imports. That percentage has doubled. FDA inspectors conducted 78,659 examinations of imported food shipments in fiscal year 2003, according to Herndon. The number far exceeded the agency’s goal of 48,000 field inspections for the year and was more than six times the 12,000 inspections conducted in fiscal 2001. Food importers give the new rules mixed reviews. “What we initially thought was 450,000, we’re thinking is more likely 250,000,” Herndon said. It’s also likely that some companies aren’t aware they need to register or that they don’t believe the rules apply to them. The notices allow agency officials to judge which shipments need inspection. The food security rules are jointly enforced by the FDA and the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection. Despite increased inspections, few shipments have been detained. Since the prior-notice law took effect in December 2003, FDA and customs inspectors have detained 12 shipments because of concerns about food contamination or filth. None of the shipments was found to be a threat to people or animals, Herndon said. Importers must register with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and provide 2 to 8 hours’ notice of food shipments. The FDA has been receiving advance notice of about 150,000 shipments each week, according to the agency’s compliance summary information. About 99.3% of those notices are completed on time, a marked improvement from earlier this year, Michael Herndon, a public affairs specialist with the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, told CIDRAP News yesterday. “We’re going back now and examining to make sure the prior-notice information is accurate,” Herndon added. Stout also asked that the FDA eliminate requirements that food and beverage companies track lot or production codes for each retail product. If the food supply is threatened, Stout said, companies and retailers remove all the suspect products from shelves. The new system has led to more targeted inspections and prompted some criticism from the food industry. But as with a student’s homework assignment, filling in the blanks doesn’t always mean giving a right answer. Although most notices are complete, the information isn’t always accurate. “While FDA made many improvements to the proposed regulations, there is still room for more, especially with concern to prior notice and record keeping,” said Susan Stout, vice president of federal affairs for the Grocery Manufacturers of America, in congressional testimony Jun 25. Addressing the Health Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, she requested that the FDA provide feedback on incomplete notices. Registration remains a stumbling block. By Jun 24, only 208,277 foreign and domestic companies had registered with the FDA. By some FDA estimates, twice that many businesses need to register; others say the estimates have been adjusted. Herndon said Jun 29 that the FDA continues to work with importers to educate them about registration and completing the prior-notice forms. The FDA went gently into the new rules by emphasizing education. Now regulators are moving toward the enforcement end of the spectrum. Jun 30 (CIDRAP News) – As federal agencies near the Aug 12 deadline for full enforcement of the food security provisions of the 2002 Bioterrorism Act, authorities say the food industry is getting better at following the new rules. Inspectors also have more sophisticated tools to target suspect imports. When companies notify the FDA that a shipment is arriving, agency employees can run that information through up to 100 checks, looking for red flags such as easily contaminated foods, specific countries of origin, or a product that matches other intelligence information, an FDA spokesman said. “Even though the bigger picture is to protect Americans from bioterrorism, we’re still not in the business of impeding commerce,” he said.

first_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco After Muncy walked on four pitches, Sanchez went to 3-and-0 on A.J. Pollock. Pollock swung at the fourth pitch and bounced it back to Sanchez who threw home for a forceout. Corey Seager was ahead in the count 3-and-1 when he bounced a grounder to first baseman Howie Kendrick to end the inning.That was it until the eighth inning. Sanchez and reliever Javy Guerra retired 22 Dodgers in order into the eighth inning.“That’s what he does. That’s what he always does,” Justin Turner said of Sanchez. “He mixes throwing five pitches if you count the Eephus (a 67-mph curveball that struck out Corey Seager in the fourth). Just moves the ball around, living on the edges, getting some weak contact or some balls that are hit hard but guys are standing there. Next thing you know he’s through seven innings.”The game went into the eighth tied at 1-1 thanks to Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu (who lowered his MLB-best ERA to 1.74) and Alex Verdugo. Verdugo made a sliding play at the foul line on Adam Eaton’s fly ball to start the sixth inning then threw out the potential go-ahead run in the seventh when Gerardo Parra tried to score from second on a single.“That’s a leadoff double with (Anthony) Rendon coming up. That could have impacted the game,” Roberts said of the first play. “Then the throw home, that’s a difference in the game.”So was Pederson’s at-bat against a left-hander.With the game tied in the eighth, Nationals manager Davey Martinez brought in lefty reliever Tony Sipp, the obvious move against Pederson with the Dodgers’ bench limited. Kiké Hernandez had an MRI on Friday afternoon after injuring his left hand or wrist in Wednesday’s game and was not available to hit. Roberts did have Will Smith and newly-acquired Tyler White, both right-handed, but he didn’t want to use them in a two-out, none-on situation.“The leverage right there in that spot, to use a guy to score a run – which we ultimately did … typically odds are against that,” Roberts said.Related Articles PreviousWASHINGTON, DC – JULY 26: Kenley Jansen #74 of the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrates after a 4-2 victory against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park on July 26, 2019 in Washington, DC.

(AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)ExpandWASHINGTON — When Cody Bellinger drove Joc Pederson in with a one-out RBI single in the first inning off Nationals starter Anibal Sanchez on Friday night, it was greeted with the usual clapping and modest high-fives in the Dodgers dugout.Maybe they should have savored it a little more.The Dodgers didn’t have another hit until the eighth inning when Justin Turner’s three-run home run broke a tie and lifted them to a 4-2 victory over the Washington Nationals.The game wasn’t secured until the Dodgers endured another shaky outing by closer Kenley Jansen who threw 34 pitches to get the final three outs, barely half of them (18) strikes. Handed a three-run lead, Jansen got the first two outs efficiently enough. But then he put the tying runs on base by giving up a single, hitting a batter and walking another – with an intentional balk mixed in. He walked Juan Soto to force in a run before finally striking out Howie Kendrick to end the game.“He was one strike away from having a clean inning,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after the game, clearly bothered by Jansen’s erratic finish. “After the two-strike base hit off the bat of (Trea) Turner, the wheels came off, really, quite frankly. He’s a guy who’s always had command. … He just really couldn’t find it. Tonight wasn’t a good night.”For most of it, Roberts had other reasons to reach for the antacids.Three of the first four Dodgers batters had singles, a run scoring on Bellinger’s third in line, and Max Muncy drew a walk to load the bases with one out against Sanchez.They did more than just let him off the hook at that point. They walked him back to his corner and set him up with a cool drink and some popcorn. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start So Roberts left Pederson in for only his 34th plate appearance against a left-handed pitcher this season. Precious few of those plate appearances had ended with a base hit (six) and none had ended in a walk – until Friday.Pederson swung just once, fouling off a slider to fall behind in the count 1-and-2. But he took the next three, including a full-count slider off the plate for a walk.“It’s a good lefty. I don’t get to face them all the time,” Pederson said. “Just did my best to help the team win.”Verdugo has fared much better against left-handers and stroked a single off Sipp. Martinez again made the right move – theoretically – and went to right-hander Kyle Barraclough to face Turner and defuse the smoldering two-out rally. After a wild pitch advanced the runners, first base was open. But Barraclough continued to pitch to Turner, leaving a 3-and-1 fastball up over the plate and paying for it.“It’s a nice luxury having No. 35 (Bellinger) hitting behind you,” Turner said. “I was looking for a pitch up in the zone and I got just enough of it.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
