Food Regulation: Law, Science, Policy, and Practice, 2nd Edition
If you would like more information, a summary is available here.
Food Regulation offers an appetizing menu to those seeking to understand the regulation of food. The book includes a chapter on each main topic, explanation of the practical application of the law, along with a discussion of emerging issues. The text is unique because by design it serves not only students but also working professionals in the field, and not only law students, but also students in other fields, such as food science and food safety. The book provides an in-depth discussion of the statutes and regulations, but remains accessible to the average reader.
Prof. Fortin is Director of the Institute for Food Laws & Regulations, and the MSU College of Law's online Master's degrees in Global Food Law. The text contains over 20 percent new material, particularly a rewritten import law chapter and revisions related to food safety regulation, health claims, and food defense. It provides an in-depth discussion of the federal statutes, regulations and agencies involved in food regulation. After an introduction to U.S. food and drug regulation, it covers current food regulations, inspection and enforcement, international law, the Internet and ethics. With detailed discussion of policies and case studies, the book remains accessible to students and professionals alike. This is an excellent text for food science and food law, and a practical reference for food industry professionals, consultants and others.
