Food terrorism poses an eminent danger to the United States, according to antiterrorism specialists. While the need for higher quantities of food is only increasing, the standards for food safety have been at a standstill or worse—nonexistent. The Voice of Russia got to interview three antiterrorism food experts on the rising threats in American society. Not only did they mention the dairy sector of being in danger, but the US’ produce is also in a compromising position.

Currently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has many checks and balances in place to give consumers a solid guarantee that their food is safe to consume. As early as December 2013, the FDA announced a new proposal entitled the Food Safety Modernization Act. This would be a proposed rule under Focused Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration. To get into specifics, the guideline pinpoints terrorist-tampering within the food cycle.

As the proceedings continue, the public is allowed to submit their commentary on the proposal up until June 30, 2014 however the FDA will not give its final ruling on the matter until 2016. Americans are years away from the final say the government agency has on the matter—but will have no other choice but to wait for the bureaucratic officials to shuffle their feet while hoards of contaminated food may be seeping into the nation, little by little.
