Iron Apple Newsletter – Featured Content: Enforcement of Sanitary Transport rule came into effect April 6. Now that we are in the enforcement period of the sanitary transport rule, it is even more critical that you ensure your company meets the requirements. It is our understanding that the FDA, working with other government departments, will be doing road-checks, load inspections, facility inspections, recalls, warning letters and more. The result of not meeting requirements could be warning letters, fines, mandatory recalls, prosecution and more. Aside from the potential fines and prosecution for not being compliant, you could be putting your company at risk of losing contracts. We’ve heard from several of our clients that their shippers are requiring them to be FSMA compliant and provide documented proof before they are allowed to pick up or drop off any loads.
