FDA Announces Changes to Four FSMA Rules

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration proposed changes to four Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA) implementation rules that the agency enforced last 2013. The FSMA was signed in January 2011 to resolve cases of the food-borne illnesses onset in the 2000s.

The rules in the FSMA to be updated include those for produce safety, preventive controls for human and animal food and foreign supplier verification programs. Revisions will be implemented for these to be more flexible, practical and targeted. Thousand of responses and suggestions for the changes came from farmers, the general public and various stakeholders.

Comments on the updated provisions will be accepted for 75 days after the adjustments have been published in the Federal Register. A public meeting for the revised proposals will be held by the FDA on November 13, 2014 at the College Park, Md. The final rules will be issued in 2015.

Having the same goal as FSMA in preventing contamination, The Industrial Lubricant Store (ILS) offers a wide variety of quality food-grade lubricants that are specifically formulated to cater to the demanding needs of various industrial food services equipment.
