FDA Food Safety Modernization Act: A Primer by FDA 

The "FDA Food Safety Modernization Act" video explains how the new law makes prevention from farm to table the basis of food safety. It describes how preventing problems before they occur is critical given today's complex, global food supply and the emerging pathogens that are especially threatening to vulnerable populations. Finally, the video explains how the law applies to both domestic and imported foods, and to be successful requires that everyone in the food production process understands and accepts their responsibility.

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act: A Primer by FDA is also available in Chinese (中文) and Spanish (En Español).

The Rulemaking Process: A Primer by FDA 

The "The Rulemaking Process" video explains how laws are implemented by rules, and how rules get made in an open and transparent process. It describes how FDA publishes a proposed rule and how the public can offer comments on the proposed rule. Finally, the video explains how the Agency considers those comments before publishing a final rule and how the Agency gives companies time before a final rule becomes effective, having the force of law.
