Really interesting discussion and an excellent checklist.

However,  I was told an interesting quote regarding food defence, though it was specifically in relation to TACCP.  It related to comparisons between HACCP and TACCP.

 

For HACCP you need a highly developed, flexible technical mind.  For TACCP you need to think like a highly developed, flexible criminal mind!

 

Checklists are great, but they need to be forensically questioned not taken as minimum standards.

What I posted was not a "checklist" per se. It was a short list (not all inclusive) of mitigation strategies that we currently use or I have used in the past. 

Again, your specific mitigation strategies will be based upon your risk assessment. And in the USA, somewhat dictated by FDA as part of FSMA implementation.

After 911 there was a push to have food  defense plans. We have them but the requirements have not been updated for years. We are waiting for the final ruling for FSMA and adapt from there. Our previous focus was on TEAM exercises. The move now is vulnerability assessments. Looking forward for more emphasis on this program. The largest issue will be the internal intentional adulteration (aka Kelloggs video). Employees are trusted and can easily do harm to a company.

Hi Sarah,

 

Unfortunately, afaik, statistically, most VAs are unrelated to Food Safety.

Hello charles,

 

Sad to say, I agree. Authorities must take a second look on VA especially on EMA. They only consider on the economic gain of the culprits, but not the effect of food safety during example of dilution. There is an example of olive oil was diluted with mineral oil that sickened consumer.
