The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)
focuses on maintaining food safety that involves transporting produce in frozen food trailers. The act, under the direction of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), requires vehicles transporting products such as fruits and vegetables to adhere to strict regulatory standards. The goal of the act is to prevent illnesses related to contaminated food.
“FSMA aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus to preventing contamination of the food supply, rather than responding to it.”
Major Elements of FMSA:
- Preventive Controls
- Inspection and Compliance
- Imported Food Safety
- Enhanced Partnerships
