Last week, the Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN) updated its “What We Eat In America-Food Commodity Intake Database" (WWEIA-FCID).

JIFSAN is continuing its work in Asia to strengthen food safety laboratories through participation in a collaborative project between Food Industry Asia and the Asian Development Bank. This program aims to strengthen the food supply chain through training in risk assessment, numerous aspects of supply chain management and laboratory testing.
