FDA Food Safety Modernization Act Information Session

Tuesday, March 1, 2016
6:00pm – 8:30pm

New Haven Extension Center

Are you worried about the new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Product Safety Rule? and how it will affect your life and your livelihood? The University of Connecticut Extension in cooperation with the Connecticut Department of Agriculture/USDA Specialty Crops program is providing three opportunities for farmers to learn more about FSMA.

We will discuss the rule, exemptions from the rule (based on farm size, product and/or distribution of product), key provisions, resources for keeping up to date on implementation and training. There will be an opportunity to ask questions.

snow date: March 2

The info sessions are provided at no cost, but pre-registration is required. To register, contact Diane Hirsch at 203.407.3163 or
