  • Description:
    CDC is committed to supporting the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and is working closely with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other agencies to execute its provisions. The new authorities for FDA and enhanced surveillance and response capacity at local, state and federal levels authorized in the Act can transform food safety systems in the United States. Inherent in the legislation is the potential to increase overall capabilities and provide new opportunities for detecting more problems sooner, responding to them faster and more efficiently, monitoring the effectiveness of interventions to prevent foodborne illness, and providing data to guide food safety policy.

    CDC’s ability to provide high quality surveillance data and leadership in outbreak investigations will support FDA in designing data driven preventive controls and food safety standards. The FSMA promotes the enhancement of foodborne illness surveillance systems to improve the collection, analysis, reporting, and usefulness of foodborne illness data.
