FDA Proposes New Rules to Strengthen Food Safety
Date:1/7/2013

p>Larger farms would expect to be in compliance with the new rules within 26 months, though smaller enterprises would get more time.

The second rule would require domestic and foreign makers of food sold in the United States to develop plans to prevent their products from becoming contaminated. Facilities would also have to have plans in place to correct any problems that might arise.

"This rule establishes the basic framework for controlling hazards during processing," Taylor said.

The new rules do not affect meat production, which is overseen by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The FDA expects to propose more rules in the future, including some that would affect food importers. According to the agency, about 15 percent of all food consumed in the United States is imported.

Although "no strategy can achieve zero risk," Hamburg said, recent outbreaks were caused by problems that would be addressed by these approaches.

There will be a 120-day period for comments on the proposed regulations.
