The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will be hosting three online public meetings to discuss the recently released proposed rule “Requirements for Additional Traceability Records for Certain Foods.” The meetings will provide additional information about the proposed rule, which was issued under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, and are intended to facilitate and support the public's evaluation and commenting process on the proposed rule.

In October 2018, the Center for Food Safety and the Center for Environmental Health sued the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for failing to meet statutory deadlines found in 2011’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and the Administrative Procedures Act.

The Center for Food Safety and the Center for Environmental Health said that under FSMA, the FDA must designate “high risk” food that requires additional record-keeping to protect public health. The original FSMA deadline for FDA to designate the “high risk” foods was 2012.
