After a series of large-scale food safety problems almost a decade ago, Congress passed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Food Safety Modernization Act, or FSMA, to shift our food safety system from one that focused primarily on responding to problems to a system that prevents them from happening in the first place. It was the most significant change to the food safety framework in decades and was an important step that gave the FDA new authorities to help fulfill our obligation to protect consumers. And now, as we embark on a New Era of Smarter Food Safety, we know further enhancing compliance with the foundational FSMA requirements will be critical to our success.
