Implementing the Food Safety Modernization Act
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law by President Obama on January 4, 2011. It aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus of federal regulators from responding to contamination to preventing it. Use these pages to learn more about the law, the proposed rules under the law, and ways you can get involved with United Fresh to help provide comments to FDA and prepare for implementation.
United Fresh convened more than 100 member company experts in a comprehensive review of all FSMA proposals. Our review recommended many changes in the FDA proposals to better meet food safety goals and reflect industry practices.
