Food Navigator, a newsletter aimed at the food industry, collects a series of articles about the development of the controversial new law.
I am a daily reader of FoodNavigator-USA.com, a newsletter aimed at the food industry. Occasionally the site collects posts on one subject. This collection deals with food safety since Congress passed the new law more than a year ago. The Interactive Timeline is particularly useful.
- Interactive Timeline: The Food Safety Modernization Act: A year ago, President Obama signed the Food Safety Modernization Act into law. FoodNavigator-USA tracks its development and implementation -- as well as all the controversy along the way -- in our exclusive interactive timeline.
- Expect 'considerable growing pains' as FSMA kicks in, warns lawyer: While the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) will undoubtedly "raise the floor" and increase confidence in the U.S. food supply, experts are predicting "considerable growing pains" as the industry gets to grips with the new legislation.
- Life under the Food Safety Modernization Act: Tracing, tracking and brand protection: The ability to track and trace ingredients is likely to be a major focus for food manufacturers as the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is rolled out -- but the most important consideration for companies is brand reputation, according to a FSMA specialist at ADT Security Services.
- FDA: We'll publish FSMA foreign supplier verification rules 'soon': The FDA has missed its January 4 deadline for publishing details of how it will regulate imported food under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), but says it will update the industry "soon."
- FDA hails 'significant progress' under year-old food safety law: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) claims it has made significant progress with regulatory developments related to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) since the bill was signed into law a year ago, according to its one-year progress report.
