Read Frequently Asked Questions

FSMA has eliminated the traditional position that FDA could not mandate recall of adulterated food. FSMA has broadened the definition of food subject to agency detention. This training program will help you understand how FDA’s new mandatory food recall and detention authorities may affect your business.

Why Should You Attend:

One of the fundamental changes by FSMA in FDA’s authority is the agency’s ability to require recall of a food product which FDA considers to be adulterated or misbranded in a way that there is a reasonable probability that the product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death to humans or animals.

Historically, FDA has not been able to require recall of food products, unlike drugs and medical devices. For the first time, FSMA gives FDA authority to require recall of a food product which the agency considers to present a reasonable probability of adverse effect on public health. FSMA also has expanded the category of food which is subject to administrative detention.

This webinar will help attendees stay informed concerning the procedures applicable to FDA with respect to mandatory food recalls. Attendees will also learn industry options for responding to a proposed FDA recall.
