EAS Complimentary Webinar: US FDA Proposed Traceability Rule

FDA’s proposed rule “Requirements for Additional Traceability Records for Certain Foods” mandates traceability recordkeeping requirements for certain foods such as cheeses, shell eggs, some types of fish and produce. When finalized, the Traceability Regulation will be the final component of FSMA and a key component of the FDA “New Era of Smarter Food Safety Blueprint,” implementing Section 204(d) of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
What does this proposed rule indicate and how can you begin preparing for this food safety blueprint?
Join EAS Senior Director for Food Consulting Services, Allen Sayler, for a deep dive into the proposed requirements and what they could mean for you.
Begin strengthening your record-keeping and traceability protocols to pave the way for faster identification of contaminated products and foodborne illnesses sources.
