Is your company meeting Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) guidelines? This initiative was introduced in 2009, and has been built as a roadmap to a common standard for external traceability. Implementing this initiative is a critical strategy that will help your company comply with strict food safety and supply chain regulations.
Like many of us that work in this industry I always follow very closely the presentations from the Spring and early Summer rounds of trade events and industry meetings to see what might be new.
Being that cold chain and drug security are close to my own areas of personal interest I always tune in on the articles and data related to these two areas.
Late last month the FDA CBER (Consumer Affairs Branch) issued an advisor notice to interested persons containing information related to the storage and use of temperature sensitive biological products that have been involved in a temporary electrical power failure, or flood conditions.
According to the FDA, an estimated 83,609 businesses will be affected by FSMA and the proposed Sanitation Transportation Rule. These businesses must start complying with the new requirements 60 days after the final ruling. The FDA has recently extended the comment period on this proposed rule to July 30 2014, with some leeway being given to smaller businesses.
With the recently proposed FSMA ruling set forth by the FDA, Deltatrak, Inc. is poised to establish itself within the food industry as a leading cold chain monitoring and solutions-based company. DeltaTrak’s contamination prevention tools and monitoring technology will help handlers, suppliers, and distributors comply with the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food Rule's strict guidelines and food safety standards.
