Why Should You Attend:
Recent federally-adopted rule mandates that FDA is able to detain for up to 30 days food products it believes may be adulterated or mis-branded. Such foods would be kept out of the marketplace until the agency determines whether there is a need for further enforcement actions, such as seizure or an injunction to prevent the suspect products from being distributed.
This webinar will discuss mitigate your risks of having detainment of or recall of products With proper record-keeping, labeling and barcoding applications. While these requirements mandate FDA’s action in the area of food safety, and despite the activity in this area, the Agency has had difficulty in adopting a final rule to date.
