Food Safety Modernization Act

Food & Beverages | Food Safety Modernization Act)

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law in 2011. FSMA enlarged FDAs power to regulate the safety procedures, domestically and internationally, for the producing, manufacturing, packaging, storing, and transporting of food. Additionally, FSMA provided FDA with new powers to regulate food imports by increasing FDA's ability to inspect foreign and domestic facilities, increasing FDA's enforcement powers, (including broadening FDA's administrative detention powers and FDA's ability to obtain information), and granting FDA the authority to issue mandatory recalls. From farmers to manufacturers to importers this act places them with significant responsibility to prevent food contamination.
