Food safety law makes one wonder

February, 2011

Eric F. Greenberg | Attorney-at-Law

A new food safety law is imminent at press time-unless it isn’t. The U.S. Senate passed its version over a year after the House passed it, and then it got sidetracked by procedural and political squabbles into mid-December. Assuming a bill gets made into law, perhaps even by the time you read this, and assuming it contains many of the key provisions that have been included so far, there is much to discuss, even as there will be even more once the bill is made law.

PANDEMIC’S EFFECTS ON FOOD MANUFACTURING, FOR BETTER OR WORSE, COULD LINGER

Pandemic’s Effects on Food Manufacturing, for Better or Worse, Could Linger

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

It’s the A, B, Cs of food manufacturing and packaging. Building-in controls that assure food safety and quality are the very essence of any good food operation. The law requires it, the regulations require it, private standards certifications require it, and just good common sense requires it. That’s why food making and packaging operations incorporate preventive controls, Good Manufacturing Practices, and QA and QC steps, and regularly reevaluate what they’re doing and make adjustments. And it’s all a lot of work.
