WASHINGTON (AP) — Experts are recommending the Food and Drug Administration offer training, technology and expertise to developing nations in Asia, Latin America and other developing regions to assure the safety of more imported goods.

The Institute of Medicine panel recommends the U.S. work with counterparts throughout the world to assure supply chains for imported food and drugs, which increasingly cross borders. More than 80 percent of pharmaceutical ingredients are imported, as well as 85 percent of the seafood consumed in the U.S., according to the group’s report.

The Institute of Medicine is a nonpolitical group of experts that advises the federal government on medical issues. The new report was requested by the Food and Drug Administration.
