Food Safety Modernization Act

The US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the most comprehensive change in food safety laws in the US in more than 70 years. Around 48 million people get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die each year due to foodborne diseases. Through FSMA, the U.S. Congress focuses more on the food industry on the prevention of foodborne illness. FSMA will trace each and every sector to produce business supply chain from farm-to-fork. The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) prevents the controls for Human Food rule and for the Animal Food rule.
