FDA to resume high-risk food inspections today

On Monday, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb announced that the agency would resume inspections of high-risk foods such as dairy products, infant formula, and fresh produce. Approximately 150 furloughed employees will be brought back to begin inspections as early as today. These employees will still be unpaid, however, as the government shutdown which began on December 22nd goes on without an end in sight.
