Are You in Compliance with the FDA’s FSMA?

Tegam White Paper

TEGAM’s PMX systemOnline — Annually, the food industry loses 7 billion dollars due to food withdrawals, rejections and recalls.

Most of these costs result from internal reworking, commodity loss, inventory replacement, removing goods from the shelves, lost sales, public relations and customer confidence repair.

The Food Safety Modernization Act, developed and sponsored by the Food and Drug Administration, has recently shifted its focus from responding to contamination to preventing contamination.

New regulations also extend prevention requirements to cover the whole U.S. food supply chain from farm-to-fork.
