Nov. 1 webinar covers FSMA details


TOLEDO, Ohio — Experts from Bob Evans Farms and Benesch law firm will discuss the Food and Drug Administration’s Food Safety Modernization Act rule on sanitary transportation of human and animal food during a webinar hosted by the Center for Innovative Food Technology Nov. 1 at 1 p.m.

This rule creates a modern, risk-based framework for food safety, particularly when food travels from farm-to-table.

The goal is to prevent practices during transportation that create food safety risks, such as failure to properly refrigerate food, inadequate cleaning of vehicles between loads, and failure to properly protect food.

Because of illness outbreaks resulting from human and animal food contaminated during transportation practices, there have long been concerns about the need for regulations to ensure that foods are being transported safely.


Josh Huff, director of transportation and logistics, Bob Evans Farms, will present the industry perspective on the requirements of the rule and how the food industry will comply.

He will also discuss possible technology solutions to aid in compliance.

Stephanie Penninger of the business law firm, Benesch, is an attorney in litigation and transportation and logistics.

She will share her expert insights on the rule and its requirements.


The webinar is free to CIFT members and $25 for non-members.
