Seafood HACCP active

FDA's HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) regulations for the seafood industry became effective December 18. Seafood processors are responsible for identifying points in the processing system, including those relating to packaging, where contamination is likely to occur, and then designing procedures to reduce or eliminate such contamination.

Similarly, meat and poultry processors also are subject to mandatory HACCP regulations that will be fully implemented by year 2000.
