2-19. SUSPECTED VIOLATIONS OF FDA, USDA, USDC REGULATIONS, AND
REPORTING REJECTIONS, SUBSECTION 212.6
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), US Department of Health and Human
Services, is the sole agency responsible for investigation and enforcement of the
Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. The FDA is authorized to investigate and to
bring action against violators of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Such
violations include the interstate movement of commodities, which are short of
contracted weight, mislabeled, impure, or adulterated. Any violations of the Federal
Meat Inspection Act and the Poultry Product Inspection Act of 1946, to include
regulations related to water foods inspected by the National Marine Fisheries Service,
are investigated and acted upon by DPSC. Food inspectors must realize the
importance of reporting suspected violations, such as short weights, swollen cans, high
mold count, misleading labels, and quality below FDA, USDA, or USDA standards of
identity. Violations are reported by the inspector to the chief, inspection office, and if the
suspicion warrants, the inspector may report violations to the contracting officer.
