INSPECTIONS ON THE RISE FOR FOOD AND BEVERAGE INDUSTRY
Each year, approximately 48 million Americans are sickened by contaminated food with 128,000 requiring hospitalization and 3,000 of those cases resulting in death. The resulting yearly loss to the food and beverage industry due to foodborne illnesses is estimated at $75 billion.
In an effort to reduce these statistics, Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed. The first significant update to food safety regulations in 70 years. Among the many new changes is a statute that gives the FDA authority to order a recall of food products and will require more frequent inspections at food and beverage producing facilities.
