The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced that it will publish the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food Proposed Rule after hosting a series of public meetings. This proposed rule will be the seventh and final rule under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and would establish criteria for the sanitary transportation of human and animal food.
Generally, the proposed rule would apply to all shippers, receivers, and carriers who transport food in the United States by motor or rail, whether or not the food enters interstate commerce. The rule would also apply to foreign persons – such as importers overseas – who ship food to the United States, only if that food will be consumed or distributed in the US. Accordingly, parties involved in transporting food through US commerce on its way to another country would be exempt from the rule.
