FDA Releases Final Rules Strengthening National Food Safety Requirements

from NPMA

On Sept. 10, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration released final rules; Current Good Manufacturing Practice and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventative Controls for Human Food, and Good Manufacturing Practice and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventative Controls for Animal Food. The rules were statutorily mandated through the passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) signed into law in January 2011. FSMA is a broad initiative to overhaul the national food supply system in an effort to strengthen food safety through increased accountability, oversight and preventative measures. The rules released on September 10 require all registered food facilities to maintain a food safety plan, perform a hazard analysis and institute preventive controls and verify these preventive controls are properly working. Non-compliance with these new rules can lead to hefty fines and lengthy injunctions. The new rules highlight the value of proper pest management within food facilities, and our industry’s continued effort to provide these valuable services. more
