Intentional adulteration (IA) is a relatively new concern.
It differs from ‘fraudulent’ adulteration in that its intent is not economic gain but rather to cause widespread harm. It is a growing concern for food safety bodies who must consider, for example, how to prevent or mitigate terrorist acts in order to contaminate food supplies.
To counter this threat, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has added to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) a new rule to help safeguard against IA.
Rather than attempting to specify safety procedures for every type of risk and food product, its approach is systems-based. Thus, it requires producers to develop risk mitigation strategies to protect their processes against bad actors.
