The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is requesting a budget of $3.2 billion to protect and promote the public health as part of the President’s fiscal year (FY) 2010 budget—a 19% increase over the current FDA fiscal year budget. One of the major initiatives of the budget falls under “Protecting America’s Food Supply,” which has a proposed budget of $259.3 million. The goal of this effort is to protect American consumers by preventing intentional and unintentional contamination. It would focus on foreign and domestic sources of ingredients, components, and finished products at all points in the supply chain, including their eventual use by the American public. Within this initiative, the FDA proposes to collect a total of $94.4 million in new user fees to register food facilities and increase food inspections, issue food and feed export certificates, and re-inspect food facilities that fail to meet the FDA’s safety standards.
