FDA Releases Food Transportation Rules

The FDA has released the sanitary transportation final rule, the last rule required by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The rule was submitted to the Federal Register for publication last Friday, and posted on the FDA’s website yesterday. The rule creates requirements for shippers, loaders, carriers (including motor and rail), and receivers who are involved with transporting human and animal foods.
