The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has posted its "Operational Strategy for Implementing the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)."
According to the administration:
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) gives FDA a new public health mandate. It directs FDA to establish standards for adoption of modern food safety prevention practices by those who grow, process, transport, and store food. It also gives FDA new mandates, authorities and oversight tools aimed at providing solid assurances that those practices are being carried out by the food industry on a consistent, on-going basis.
