The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has launched the Grade “A” Milk Search (GAMS) System, a new tool that allows stakeholders to search the FDA’s online Grade “A” Milk Memoranda database.

The new searchable inventory contains all active memoranda issued by the FDA related to oversight of the Grade “A” Program, including Memoranda of Conference Actions (IMS-a), Memoranda of Information (M-I), Memoranda of Interpretation (M-a) and Memoranda of Milk Ordinance Equipment Compliance (M-b).

The search capabilities of the GAMS System include both basic and advanced functions with options to allow for additional search fields, including document title/subject, type of memoranda and specific date ranges.

This new database serves as a resource to state and local milk regulatory and rating agencies, the dairy industry, and other interested parties in the safe production of milk and milk products through the application of science-based food safety principles on the farm and at all stages through the processing chain.

The GAMS System is maintained by the FDA’s Division of Dairy, Egg and Meat Products, Milk and Milk Products Branch in the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN).

China is trying to buy up all the Dairy's in the USA and use their Chemicals in the milk. They have their Milk in Walmart in south Jackson Tn. 38301 .

Posted by Earl Lovell,

It is called Prairie Farms and the store brand is the exact same milk.
I was searching for answers and it seems China may own 44% of walmart .
Many products messed up.
I went on and found a Good Dairy products in Food Giant store.
BUT! I seen the news about china and milk then I knew what is happening.
Please inspect Dairy Products in South Jackson Tn. 38301 walmart. It taste very much like Powdered milk....I could tell you more about them. Please see my FB page for more details about the milk and ..................Earl Lovell on FB https://www.facebook.com/Artkeyology1
