The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the most sweeping reform of our food safety laws in more than 70 years, was signed into law on January 4, 2011. It aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing it. The Food Safety Specialists (Contact us today!) at Produce Food Safety Services can help you navigate these new Regulations and are also a great resources and often a call or email is easier than searching through lots of useful information that may or may not pertain to your specific needs.
