FDA to hold virtual meeting on traceability rule proposal

October 8, 2020

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will be holding a series of three virtual one-day public meetings to discuss the recently released proposed rule “Requirements for Additional Traceability Records for Certain Foods.” The purpose of the public meetings is to discuss the proposed rule issued under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. These public meetings will facilitate the public's evaluation and commenting process on the proposed rule.

The agency has identified shell eggs as a high-risk food requiring additional traceability and record-keeping in the proposed rule. UEP staff and consultants will be listening in on the virtual meetings to get additional information and understand the current thinking of the agency to pass along to the industry.  The dates of the virtual public meetings are:

November 6, 2020,  8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. EST

November 18, 2020, 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. EST

December 2, 2020, 11:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. EST
