The Produce Safety Rule: Preparing for Routine FDA Inspections


We all know that 2018 was not a great year for farmers and growers in the United States. From romaine lettuce to pre-cut melons, we witnessed several foodborne disease outbreaks linked to the produce industry, triggering huge nationwide recalls. At least 800 people were sickened or hospitalized from multiple E. coli  outbreaks linked to romaine lettuce alone.

For farmers and regulators, reducing the number of food safety incidents remains a priority. If you operate a business that grows and sells fresh produce (fruits and vegetables), you should ensure your business complies with the provisions of the  Produce Safety rule for which FDA inspections start in Spring 2019.

Under the Microscope: Food Industry Sees Increase in FDA Inspections

Food safety is an important issue. About 128,000 people are hospitalized every year due to a foodborne illness, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Regulatory bodies, therefore, continue to adopt stricter measures to ensure compliance with food safety regulations and guidelines.

In the last few years, the FDA has increased efforts to reduce the number of food safety incidents. The most prominent move was the enactment of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), signed into law in 2011. More recently, the FDA aims to increase domestic and foreign inspections of regulated products.

Do you trust your suppliers? Are they FSMA compliant and certified to GFSI schemes?  How are you keeping track of them? In a perfect world, all food companies would know the answers to these questions; however, for many, supply chain management is the weakest link in their food safety program.       

The State of Food Traceability


As we reflect back on the last ten years, we have made significant growth in food traceability. There have been huge advancements in technology and traceability standards, as well as regulations driven by the Food Safety Modernization Act.
