The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the most sweeping reform of our food safety laws in more than 70 years. The purpose of the law is to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to proactively preventing it. The law affects both the producers and processors of food. Sarah Everhart, legal specialist with Carey School of Law and Ashley Newhall, Extension legal specialist with the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics covered the Produce & Preventive Rule portions of the law in a webinar.
