FSMA

The New Food Safety Program

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law in 2011, and its major provisions were implemented in September, 2016.  The thrust of the new regulations emphasizes a pro-active, preventative approach on the part of food manufacturers to reduce contamination and food-borne illness, rather than simply react to problems as they occur. Importantly, FSMA shifts primary responsibility for food safety away from government inspectors to food companies and employees, who will be required to maintain strict records and documentation of pro-active measures intended to insure compliance 24/7/365. Under FSMA, it will no longer be acceptable to plead ignorance of the law. Manufacturers and processors will bear the major burden of enforcing the new food safety regulations. More Information
