FDA Uses FSMA Suspension Authority; Second Suspension Under New FSMA Powers
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) suspended the registration of a food facility at Roos Foods in Kenton, Delaware. Facility registration is required by all food companies in order to distribute their products. The suspension follows a widening investigation by the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and state and local officials into a multi-state outbreak of listeriosis linked to Hispanic-style cheese products made and distributed by Roos Foods. The suspension is only the second time the agency has flexed its new power gains under the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act.
