When it comes to food production, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires a number of date marks on items, including “use by,” “sell by,” “best if used by,” and expiration dates. But do you understand what these dates mean, what your regulatory obligations are, and how the FDA Food Code impacts your retail food facility?
Get your critical questions answered in this live webinar with food safety expert Melissa Vaccaro. You’ll learn the details of FDA date stamping and the difference between FDA Food Code date marks and manufacturer date labels. Plus, Vaccaro will thoroughly explain how to date mark the food you make or use on-site—and how to make compliant determinations about whether and when to use a food product.
At the end of this session, you’ll know all the different date labels FDA uses and what you need to do to comply with regulations—including which food products are required to have a manufacturer’s date mark and which follow optional guidelines. It’s time to clear up your confusion about the dates you see on manufactured foods—and ensure strong food safety and regulatory compliance at your facility.
