Food and Drug Safety
The QA Veterinarian Section is staffed by three military personnel experts in their field (two officers and one enlisted from the Army and the Air Force, respectively). QA-VET personnel oversee matters of public health / consumer protection related to food safety and quality, over-the-counter (OTC) nonprescription drugs, and health and beauty care (HBC) products.
Our staff continually maintains close relations with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and other federal, state and military agencies to ensure consumer protection, food quality and product safety. A daily coordinated effort with the U.S. Army Veterinary Services, U.S. Army Preventive Medicine and the U.S. Air Force Public Health personnel executes inspection of commercial food manufacturing facilities in addition to inspection of our 2,300+ Exchange retail food operations.
