Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the amalgamation of disparate elements that make up the food import regulatory system in the United States. This patchwork collection of authorities provides a useful laboratory to observe the effectiveness of the different regulatory approaches. The author discusses how this knowledge could best be used to create a more effective, prevention-based import regulatory system.
