The Food Safety Modernization Act: Learn More, Act Today!


Everyone has a role in ensuring safe food from field to fork. The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the first major overhaul of our nation’s food safety practices since 1938, and it includes new regulations for produce farms and for facilities that process food for people to eat. It represents some big changes to our food system – and it is extremely important for the Food and Drug Administration to get these regulations right.

THE PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD ON FSMA ENDED ON NOVEMBER 22, 2013. SIGN UP FOR UPDATES TO HEAR ABOUT NEXT STEPS ON FSMA IN 2014.
