?On January 4, 2011, President Obama signed into law the most sweeping reform of our food safety laws in more than 70 years. The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) aims to ensure the US food supply is safe by shifting the focus from response to prevention.? SnaxPo 2012.
?For example, processors of all types of food will now be required to evaluate the hazards in their operations, implement and monitor effective measures to prevent contamination, and have a plan in place to take any corrective actions that are necessary. Also, FDA will have much more effective enforcement tools for ensuring those plans are adequate and properly implemented, including mandatory recall authority when needed to swiftly remove contaminated food from the market.
This law represents a sea change for food safety in America, bringing a new focus on prevention, and I expect that in the coming years it will have a dramatic and positive effect on the safety of the food supply. ?

The MCT330SF measures moisture, oil, fat, and flavorings on-line. It?s accurate, rugged, and reliable. The MCT330 is also housed in a unique stainless steel design with food grade optical window for wash down environments and high temperatures. The housing minimizes any areas for bacterial growth and is sealed for wash downs that will increase as manufacturer?s move from ?response to prevention?.
