The Food and Drug Administration published in the Federal Register the Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA) sanitary transportation final rule.
The final rule will help maintain the safety of both human and animal food during transportation by establishing requirements for vehicles and transportation equipment, transportation operations, information exchange, training, record keeping and waivers. The rule aims to mitigate food safety risks for products traveling via motor or rail vehicle, such as failure to properly refrigerate food, inadequate cleaning of vehicles between loads and failure to properly protect food during transportation. The final rule takes effect June 6, 2016.share on facebook share on twitter
