Ovotrack complies with new FDA rule for food and tranceability

Ovotrack complies with FDA rule for food traceability

The FDA final rule on Requirements for Additional Traceability Records for Certain Foods establishes traceability recordkeeping requirements for persons who manufacture, process, pack, or hold foods included on the Food Traceability List (FTL) which also includes shell eggs. The new requirements identified in the final rule will allow for faster identification and rapid removal of potentially contaminated food from the market, resulting in fewer foodborne illnesses and/or deaths.

At the core of this rule is a requirement that persons subject to the rule who manufacture, process, pack, or hold foods on the FTL, maintain records containing Key Data Elements (KDEs) associated with specific Critical Tracking Events (CTEs); and provide information to the FDA within 24 hours or within some reasonable time to which the FDA has agreed.

The Ovotrack Solution can help you comply to the FDA rule, as we did already for several companies in the U.S., like Kreher Family Farms who trusted Ovotrack on fulfilling this task.

"I am happy that our traceability system is in place, especially with the new regulation coming. I feel confident that Kreher’s complies with the FDA rule."
