Port Jersey Logistics participates in IWLA meeting with FDA on pending food safety law
Port Jersey Logistics (PJL), a leading public warehousing and distribution company, was recently one of five company members of the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) to meet with Food & Drug Administration officials currently determining legislative details of the pending Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Held in Washington, D.C., the meeting served as a forum for expert insight to assist in the rule making process surrounding preventive controls for food contamination. Lou Keating, Executive Vice President, represented Port Jersey Logistics at the gathering, which is seen as an important step toward helping FDA officials fully understand the role of third-party logistics warehousing in the overall food supply chain. In particular, the IWLA group expressed its support for FDA’s initial conclusion, which found that warehouses whose food handling is limited to already-packaged products should be exempt from developing hazard analysis and preventative control plans, largely because many controls already exist in the industry’s current operating guidelines.
