A Useful Resource on the Food Safety Modernization Act (and the Price is Right)

April 7, 2011

By Ricardo Carvajal

FDA has a web page devoted to the Food Safety Modernization Act (“FSMA”) that provides ready access to useful information on the new law and on FDA’s implementation activities, including:

  • the text of the law;
  • Q&A’s;
  • descriptions of the work groups charged with implementation;
  • the text of relevant speeches by the Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner for Foods;
  • interviews with senior staff;
  • archived webcasts of public meetings; and
  • translations of certain materials into several languages.

The page also provides a link to FDA’s Product Recall Page, which was revamped to be more user friendly as directed by the FSMA.
