Import Alert 99-41: A Global Food Manufacturer’s Worst Nightmare (and How to Wake Up from It)

Picture this: you’re a global food manufacturer, and you’ve just received the dreaded news that you’re on Import Alert 99-41. Your heart sinks as you realize the implications – not only will your products be detained at the border, but your reputation and bottom line are about to take a serious hit. But fear not, dear reader, for there is a knight in shining armor ready to save the day – the No Borders Concierge Team.

The Import Alert 99-41 Blues

For those unfamiliar with the term, Import Alert 99-41 is an FDA enforcement tool used to detain, without physical examination, any foods imported by an importer who is not in compliance with the Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) regulations. In other words, if you’re on this list, your products are not getting into the U.S. until you can prove that you’ve cleaned up your act.

The headaches associated with an Import Alert 99-41 are numerous. First, there’s the cost of detention – your products are stuck at the border, racking up storage fees and eating into your profit margins. Then there’s the inventory loss – if you can’t get your products into the country, you’re left with a warehouse full of goods that you can’t sell. And let’s not forget the damage to your reputation – being on an Import Alert list is not exactly a badge of honor, and it can make customers and partners think twice about doing business with you.
