The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced additional traceability record keeping requirements for companies that manufacture, process, pack, and hold foods that are on the FDA’s Food Traceability List. The proposed rule requires food manufacturers to keep records of critical events along the supply chain, including growing, shipping, receiving, creating, and manufacturing various food products. The new rules were proposed in accordance with the Food Safety Modernization Act and intend to help the Agency identify who receives various food products in order to prevent foodborne illness outbreaks as well as pinpoint foods with potential adverse health consequences due to misbranding or food adulteration. The proposed rule is open for public comment until January 21, 2021. Read more here at Forbes.
