Safe transport rule released

The seventh and last proposed rule under the 2010 Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was released today by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The rule, titled Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food, “builds on the six rules proposed in 2013 to keep produce safe, enact preventive controls in human and animal food-producing facilities, modernize oversight of imported foods, and guard against intentional contamination,” writes FDA’s Michael R. Taylor in a blog entry. Inform, the AOCS member magazine, will have more about the rule in upcoming issues.
