FDA Responds to Conference For Food Protection Recommendations


The Conference for Food Protection is a non-profit organization that was created to provide a formal process that members of industry, regulatory, academia, consumer, and professional organizations can use to provide input in the development and/or modification of food safety guidance for food safety laws and regulations at all levels of U.S. government.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has responded to the Conference for Food Protection’s (CFP) recommendations from the 2023 CFP Biennial Meeting, which was held in Houston, TX this past April. The FDA’s response letter communicates the agency’s current position on CFP’s most recent recommendations to amend the FDA Food Code, including its Annexes, the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards and the recommendations that otherwise recommend action on the part of the FDA. 

The full response letter should be read, however in summary:

The 2023 Biennial Meeting was productive, with a total of 117 issues deliberated. FDA appreciates the efforts of all participants in the 2023 Meeting to develop recommendations intended to further food safety and foster cooperation among Federal, State, local, territorial, and tribal agencies and our partners in industry, academia, and consumer groups. In accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding between FDA and the CFP, I am pleased to respond with FDA’s current positions on the 2023 recommendations for changes to the Food Code or requests for other action by FDA. Part 1 -2023 Conference Recommendations for Changes to the FDA Food Code Your letter identified 25 recommendations by the Assembly of Delegates to change the FDA Food Code (Food Code) or the Annexes. As explained more fully below, FDA conceptually agrees with 17 recommendations and partially concurs with 5 recommendations. For 3 recommendations, FDA either non-concurs or will consider the recommendation before deciding whether a Food Code modification is warranted.”

You can find the entire response in the  FDA’s response letter.
