FSMA

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law by President Barack Obama on January 4, 2011. FSMA gives the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) new authorities to regulate the way foods are grown, harvested and processed. The law grants the FDA a number of new powers, including mandatory recall authority. It aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus of federal regulators from responding to contamination to preventing it.
