December 12, 2016  -  Deputy AG Sally Yates and Assistant Deputy Benjamin Mizer have delivered important remarks in the past week on the prosecution of administrative crimes which include violations related to both FDA and USDA matters. These timely remarks are of particular interest to Regulatory Food Scientists and Food Executives during the transition to the new administration at the Department of Justice.

We post the text of both addresses below as well as a link to an important National Law Journal article which cannot be posted here due to copyright restrictions. Additionally we post the September 2015 Yates Memo which is a primary topic of both addresses.
