“Port shopping” targeted
This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet
FDA wants to stop food and dietary ingredients denied entry into the U.S. at one port from gaining access at another port through the practice of port shopping, according to a proposed rule in the Sept. 18 Federal Register. The proposal would require food shippers to clearly label food as being "refused entrance" in the U.S. if an inspector denies the import for safety concerns. This will signal other ports not to allow the imports. Comments are due Dec. 2. The proposal would implement part of the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 that criminalized port shopping, the American Herbal Products Association says
