Food News


THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the FDA on September 19, 2104.

The FDA has released updated proposals to FSMA which is designed to help prevent food-borne illness. "Since FSMA was signed into law in January 2011, the FDA has proposed seven rules to implement FSMA. The four updated proposed rules include: produce-safety; preventive controls for human food; preventive controls for animal food; and the foreign supplier verification program." The changes are the following:

  • The FDA has revised water testing provisions.
  • The rule would not apply to farms with $25,000 in produce sales.
  • Rule revised for spent grains
  • Revisions to the foreign-supplier verification proposed rule give importers more flexibility to determine appropriate supplier verification measures based on risk and previous experience with their suppliers.
Comments can be submitted to the FDA starting Sept. 29, 2014,
