FDA Announces Revised Key Provisions of Proposed FSMA Rule Language Affecting Farmers
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that they will propose revised rule language and open another comment period of two Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rules – Produce Safety and Preventive Controls for Human Food.  FDA anticipates rule language to be published by early summer 2014 to be followed by a public comment period.
The changes encompass key provisions associated with water quality standards and testing, standards for using raw manure and compost, certain requirements affecting mixed-used facilities, and procedures for withdrawing the qualified exemption for certain farms.  Additional revisions may follow FDA’s initial review of the over 25,000 comments received on these two proposed food safety rules.
