A conflict developed, however, when it became evident that it would be difficult for USDA to promote agriculture while at the same time monitoring its safety. In 1927, Congress accepted the proposal made by Wiley’s successor to the Bureau of Chemistry and separated the Bureau’s research and enforcement responsibilities by creating the Food, Drug and Insecticide Administration, which was renamed in 1930 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 123 In 1937, a tragedy spurred further legislative action.

Transgenic animals may be regulated by the FDA under the theory that the genetic manipulation is an animal drug and if the genetic change produces either a drug, food or biologic, then that product may also be regulated by the FDA. The potential for EPA regulation exists if the transgenic animal produces potentially toxic chemicals. 189 This regulation of biotechnology is complex. Three agencies work together to regulate technology that did not exist when current regulatory laws were enacted. This regulatory framework for biotechnology may continue to evolve as new transgenic organisms and products are brought to market.

178 Contaminants. The FDCA does not have a specific provision to deal with substances that become constituents of food through environmental contamination. Many of these substances, such as mercury, PCBs, aflatoxins and PBBs, can pose serious risks to public health. The FDA began to set informal Section 406 ‘action’ levels in the 1960s. The FDA was successful, for example, in charging that the residue of DDT in fish was illegal because an amount of DDT in excess of the 5 ppm action level was an unapproved food additive.
