USDA expert witnesses often have experience with several important areas, as the USDA, otherwise known as the United State Department of Agriculture, is tasked with managing the policies behind farming, food, natural resources, agricultural development, rural communities, and other related disciplines. USDA expert consulting may provide valuable insight for cases involving such areas as food science, agribusiness, hydrology, packaging, chemistry, biochemistry, environmental health, and various other agricultural issues, as each may be at the center of a USDA-related court case.
USDA experts are commonly sought out for cases involving health-related issues, as the United States Department of Agriculture is often tasked with regulating the health conditions of food and other resources. In addition to the USDA, experts in the field are also often experienced in working with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as food safety is an important aspect of both departments. USDA expert witnesses may therefore be called upon to provide an expert opinion in the event of a foodborne illness as a means of determining whether the USDA failed to properly regulate the food industry, which would result in health-related problems for various consumers, as well as potential lawsuits.
The USDA also enforces the rules and regulations regarding the proper maintenance of livestock, as failing to adhere to the codes and compliance as set by the industry may result in salmonella and other forms of foodborne illness.
