The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has proposed two new rules for the food and beverage sector. The new rules are part of the agency’s implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), which was signed into law in January 2011, following several serious outbreaks of food-borne illnesses in the United States. The regulations proposed by the agency require importers to take greater responsibility for the food they bring into the country, essentially shifting the burden of inspection from the FDA to private companies. Learn what the FSMA means for the food industry, and how RFID can be used to provide greater traceability along the supply chain.
