A food safety plan is important in any food business. The Food Safety Modernization Act in America now enforces companies to make plans to prevent intentional adulteration. Such acts, while not likely to occur, could cause illness, death, economic disruption of the food supply absent mitigation strategies. By having a plan in place, it can stop wide-scale harm to public health, including acts of terrorism targeting the food supply. Check out in this web seminar how this should change the way we implement food safety regulations in a business.
Web Seminar summary of Pitfalls of Accounting for Intentional Adulteration in Your Food Safety Plan
How do you document intentional adulteration mitigation strategies in your facility? FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act now requires that food facilities plan for intentional adulteration in a documented food defense plan. Although the requirements are similar to a food safety plan, there are distinct differences. Combining the food defense and food safety plans may create an opportunity to miss key elements in both. Learn the pitfalls of accounting for intentional adulteration in your facility’s food safety plan. We will discuss and compare industry best practices with regulatory requirements and make suggestions on how to prevent developed mitigation strategies from being compromised.
