Description

In June of 2006, the Food and Drug Administration will begin enforcement of new bioterror related recordkeeping rules for food products. Handlers and shippers of food products (including bulk grains) will be required to keep records of the origin and type of food received, and to whom the food products were then sold or delivered. Tracking grain from farmers through to end users will present major challenges, but also will support other market-driven requests for traceability, purity and food safety. This session will present the regulations as they apply to farmers, grain handlers and processors and will offer some initial steps toward meeting the requirements.
