About Food Adulteration Incidents Registry (FAIR)

The FAIR supports food defense efforts by collecting and reporting adulteration incidents, both economically motivated and intentional, thereby helping identify vulnerabilities. Data is routinely curated from publicly available sources and includes food adulteration incidents motivated by terrorism, sabotage, and fraudulent economic gain. The user- friendly dashboard includes a variety of search capabilities, incident summaries, interactive graphs, maps and references.

More information on the FAIR database can be found on FPDI's EMA page.
