On April 6, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published the latest rule stemming from the Sanitary Food Transportation Act and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This rule is designed to ensure the safe transportation of food across the United States.
Join IDFA for our next FSMA-related webinar to learn more about how the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food rule could affect the way your business operates.
The Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food rule requires food shippers, carriers and receivers to use sanitary practices and to prevent the food safety risks that can result from improper refrigeration of food, inadequate cleaning of vehicles between loads and failure to protect food. The final rule requires food shippers, carriers and receivers to establish procedures that create appropriate conditions and controls to prevent foods from becoming unsafe during transportation. Topics addressed will be how to ensure that vehicles and equipment are in an appropriate sanitary condition and that foods are maintained under adequate temperature control, as well as practices for cleaning and sanitizing equipment between loads.
Speakers from FDA and FSMA legal experts from Hogan Lovells US LLP will participate in the webinar.
