FDA names Jim Jones as First Deputy Commissioner for Human Foods
A longtime leader at the Environmental Protection Agency has been named the first Deputy Commissioner for Human Foods for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Jim Jones will lead the new executive position where he’ll be tasked with setting and advancing priorities for the agency’s Human Foods Program (HFP). His work at EPA focused on lessening the impact that chemicals and pollution have on the U.S. food supply.
Jones will start his new role with the FDA on September 24th.
Ted McKinney, CEO of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, says NASDA looks forward to working with Jones to collectively ensure the U.S. food supply remains the safest in the world.
