What is Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)? In short, it is legislation amending the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) and giving FDA the authority to mandate preventive-based controls across the food supply chain. Not only does this include U.S. food facilities but a greater oversight of the millions of food products entering the United States from other countries every year as well.
