We began 2022 with a renewed hope for better health, safety, and progress for all. Food safety management across our global supply chain, from farm to fork, is a priority that cannot be ignored as a large piece of that hope. Last year, as we celebrated 10 years of U.S. FSMA in the thick of a continuing COVID-19 pandemic, we saw sesame recognized as the 9th Top Allergen in the U.S. and a major nationwide recall of imported fresh onions towards the last quarter.
This year, we should expect to see some more food safety and sanitation-related progress in the U.S. and global food supply arenas, especially within the following areas:
In the world of food safety standards and regulations, the following developments are expected:
|FSMA Rule Requirement||Compliance Date Deadline|
|Produce Safety Regulation – Very Small Farms, Remaining water requirements for Other Produce||January 26, 2022|
|Produce Safety Regulation – Large Farms, Non-sprout agricultural water requirements||January 26, 2022|
|Produce Safety Regulation – Small Farms, Non-sprout agricultural water requirements||January 26, 2023|
|Produce Safety Regulation – Very Small Farms, Non-sprout agricultural water requirements||January 26, 2024|
The Produce Safety requirements are important especially when numerous recent food-illness outbreaks have been sourced to pathogen cross-contamination at the farms. For updated information on FSMA Compliance Dates, visit the FDA’s website.
