The Food Code is an important part of the strategy for achieving uniform national food safety standards and for enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of our nation's food safety system. This Supplement, updates the 2009 Food Code, to address several recommendations made at the 2010 Meeting of the Conference for Food Protection (CFP) with which the FDA, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) concur. The changes contained in the Supplement reflect the current science and emerging food safety issues, and imminent health hazards related to food safety.
From 1993 through 2001, the complete Food Code was issued every two years. With the support of the CFP, FDA currently issues a new Food Code every 4 years. The next complete revision of the Food Code will be published in 2013. Until that time, this Supplement provides a means of incorporating into the Food Code several changes with which there is substantial concurrence among the federal agencies and the other stakeholders. The Supplement ensures that the most current food safety provisions are available to agencies planning to initiate rule-making activities prior to 2013. This Supplement provides other users of the Food Code, such as educators, trainers, and the food service, retail food, and vending industries, with up-to-date information of how to best mitigate risk factors that contribute to foodborne illness.
