The Registry requires reports to be filed through an FDA internet portal if there is reason to believe that adulterated food or feed will cause “serious adverse health consequences or death to humans or animals.”
The role of food safety officials at a federal, state and local level will also be discussed at the meetings. The Registry is due to be implemented on September 8.
