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.

Ashley Newhall has an ongoing series explaining many of the common issues associated with FSMA.  Click over to the Maryland Risk Management Education Blog to continue reading the series.
