USA: Proposed USDA performance standards "will require careful review," says NFPA
Proposed regulations establishing performance standards to be used by the food industry in producing ready-to-eat meat and poultry products "will require careful review to ensure that they truly enhance food safety," according to the National Food Processors Association (NFPA). "Because of the scope of this rule and the broad variety of foods it covers, NFPA will need time to review and then respond to these proposed regulations," said Dr. Rhona Applebaum, NFPA's Executive Vice President for Scientific and Regulatory Affairs. "In the past, NFPA has been supportive of performance standards as opposed to 'command and control' regulations, but we will need to study this proposal further; as with all complex regulatory proposals, the details will dictate our position."
