Editor’s Note: Iowa State University and Kansas State University have a three-year contract with the FDA to develop grain and feed mill inspection training programs for its inspectors. The first four-day course, held in Manhattan, KS, in late June, will focus on feed milling. Responsible for training an estimated 700 FSMA inspectors, the training units will likely become sector specific; and may evolve into a series of 20- to 30-minute webinars with a short quiz to cover the basics before inspectors meet in a physical location.
