Food Safety Modernization Act E-Mail Update List:
We would like to inform you of a new e-mail update list that FDA has established for communicating the implementation of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). FSMA was signed into law by President Obama on January 4th, 2011 and aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus of federal regulators from responding to contamination to preventing it. FSMA gives FDA a mandate to pursue a system that is based on science and addresses hazards from farm to the table and putting greater emphasis on preventing food-borne illness. The reasoning is simple: The better the system handles producing, processing, transporting, and preparing foods, the safer our food supply will be. To learn more about the FSMA and how FDA is implementing the new law, please visit http://www.fda.gov/fsma.
