Do your Food Safety Plans meet federal requirements?

January 17, 2024 | 2 Min Read

Here's two questions for food facility owners, operators, and Corporate Executives, that could carry legal liabilities if not answered correctly: Is your Food Safety Plan up to code with the Code of Federal Regulations and specific to your facilities? Are your plans reviewed every three years or when there is a significant change to your processes? Without verifiable records of review, you could be held liable.

There an easy way to ensure the correct answer to those questions. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has designed a tool to help you. The Food Safety Plan Builder assists owners and operators of food facilities in developing food safety plans that meet the requirements of the Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation.

The Builder guides you through all of the required sections needed to develop your plan. However, it's important to note that while the content of the Builder is consistent with FDA's existing guidance and regulations, its use does not mean that your food safety plan, preventive controls, good manufacturing practices, and other food safety procedures are approved by the FDA or comply with FDA requirements.

Stay on top of your Food Safety Plan and ensure compliance with the Code of Federal Regulations. Use the Food Safety Plan Builder and keep your facility and customers safe.
