Manufacturers need ongoing planning for Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) compliance
In today's food and beverage industry, companies have to keep on top of government requirements. And that means manufacturers have to prepare for the far-reaching manufacturing compliance reform, like the US Food and Drug Administration's Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The purpose of the law is to provide a safer food supply and a more stable food industry.
Under the FSMA, the FDA has the authority to order recalls of contaminated food, a power it did not have prior to the enactment of the Food Safety Act, according to Teri Mascotti, director of business development at WithoutWire Inventory Sciences, a provider of inventory management solutions. Mascotti spoke to a recent online meeting of GPUG.
