The FDA claims to have made significant progress in the year since the introduction of the “News era of smarter food safety blueprint. The New Era blueprint, Modernization Action Plan (DMAP), and Resiliency Roadmap are components of a one-FDA approach to protecting consumers and the public health. A step toward the goal was accomplished when, in September 2020, the FDA published the FSMA-mandated Proposed Food Traceability Rule and a proposed list of foods for which the rule’s additional recordkeeping requirements would apply. The final version of the rule will be issued in late 2022. In June, the FDA launched the New Era of Smarter Food Safety Low or No-Cost Tech-Enabled Traceability Challenge. The FDA created a new data analysis tool called 21 forward to help identify where there could be disruptions in food supply continuity due to food worker absences because of the pandemic. The DMAP and the New Era blueprint and artificial intelligence (AI) are used to predict which shipments of imported foods pose the most significant risk of violation and use that information to better target import review resources. @ https://www.fda.gov/news-events/fda-voices/one-year-later-new-era-smarter-food-safety-blueprint-makes-inroads-fdas-public-health-mission?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
