Suggested introduction cut one:
All food and feed facilities within the United States are monitored by the Food and Drug Administration as a result of the Bioterrorism Act of 2002. Dr. Bill Norman, vice president of Ginner Services at the National Cotton Council, explains how and why cotton fits in these regulations.
Suggested introduction cut two:
Cotton gins, cottonseed oil mills and whole cottonseed storage facilities were required to register with the FDA by December 2003. Norman suspects the majority has complied, but for those who have not, the registration process is fairly simple.
Suggested introduction for cut three:
In most cases, registration is only required once for each food facility.
