Food Safety & Regulation 

Traceability from farm to fork is essential to a safe food supply and consumer confidence. In November 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration introduced the Food Traceability Final Rule, which imposes more rigorous recordkeeping demands on entities involved in the production, processing, packaging, or storage of foods listed on the agency's Food Traceability List. This rule, a direct result of Section 204 of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), aims to expedite and enhance recall processes and outbreak investigations, marking a significant advancement in mitigating the adverse effects of foodborne illnesses.

While requirements do not go into effect until 2026, farmers, food manufacturers, and retailers need to start considering how to map the complex food system. Join Husch Blackwell’s Emily Lyons as she provides an overview of the regulations, best practices for compliance efforts, and legal considerations for companies as they develop their compliance plan.
