The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law in early 2011. It includes reforms to a variety of programs administered by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) related to food processing, imports, and produce. Some parts of the law are already in effect and other parts will apply over the coming years as rules are finalized.
