Today, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that two rules developed as a result of the passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act in 2011 have been finalized. The Preventive Controls for Human Food rule and the Preventive Controls for Animal Food rule require companies that process food for humans and animals to implement safety plans that identify, prevent or minimize food safety hazards. According to the FDA, ”some compliance dates for some businesses begin in September 2016.”
