FDA CONSUMER HEALTH INFORMATION -- Foreign Exporters Study Food Safety Law
Date:9/29/2011

SILVER SPRING, Md., Sept. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Food and Drug Administration's international program has logged nearly 75,000 hits to its Web pages on the new food safety law, as foreign companies that export food to the United States scramble to learn how the law affects them.

Food Safety and Modernization Act, which became law in January, has been translated into 11 languages using eight different alphabets. Excluding English, they include the five remaining, official United Nations languages—Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, Spanish—and six languages that represent the top countries from which the United States imports food—Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Thai, and Hindi.

Because a high percentage of some foods—such as seafood and fresh fruit—served in U.S. households and restaurants are imported, the law gives FDA important new authority to hold imported foods to the same standards as domestic foods.
