FSMA Readiness

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law on Jan. 4, 2011, to better protect humans and animals. FSMA focuses on preventing food safety problems rather than reacting to problems after they occur, and recognizes the need for a global approach to food and feed safety.

The FDA has proposed seven additional rules that are foundational to this preventive approach encompassed by FSMA.
