At IATP we have written a lot about holes in the U.S. food safety inspection system. But when it comes to food, we live in a global system. Food contamination in one country can affect consumers in multiple countries.

The Global Food Safety Monitor was published from 2008 through 2015 to cover the challenges of setting strong international food safety regulations that protect public health.

As Dr. Steve Suppan, author of the Global Food Safety Monitor, writes, “This bulletin will provide analytic content for what might otherwise appear as isolated incidents of food contamination, livestock abuse, regulatory violations and/or complaints of the unfair use of standards to block trade. Many of these incidents are not isolated after all. They are symptoms of a broken global food system that urgently needs broad reform.”
