@FrankYiannasFDA

  • ·       Thanks to everyone at #IAFP2019 who came to hear our update on FSMA & a New Era of Smarter Food Safety. My speech is posted here: http://go.usa.gov/xywz5 . We’ll post the video link as soon as it’s available. #smarterfoodsafety @US_FDA
  • ·       Today, #FDA announced it recently suspended the food facility registration of Topway Enterprises Inc (or Kazy’s Gourmet) following inspections where serious food safety violations were observed. Topway now cannot sell or distribute any food into commerce https://go.usa.gov/xyf3W
  • ·       The company has yet to implement adequate corrective actions. FDA issued a safety alert on 7/18 advising TX and LA food retailers and consumers should discard recent shipments of Topway’s seafood products https://go.usa.gov/xyf3k
  • ·       Topway’s unsafe practices not only violated the law, but also jeopardized the health of consumers as the company continued to distribute food products likely to be contaminated with Listeria. This is the sixth time FDA has suspended a facility’s registration through FSMA.

@mbrashears

  • ·       FSIS and FDA... Two Regulatory Agencies with ONE common goal ...SAFE FOOD! New innovations through modernization and smart food safety approaches move us forward! @FrankYiannasFDA and I gave the regulatory update at IAFP today. ...good things lie ahead!!
