Understanding the New PCHF Analysis Guidance

The FDA has finally released an update to the Preventive Controls/Human Foods Rule draft guidance, including a revised Appendix 1: Known or reasonably foreseeable hazards.

This means clearer steps to identify potential dangers in your food products.

But what's changed? The new Appendix 1 now includes a listing of potential biological and chemical hazards for 16 different food types. Plus, it clarifies the importance of considering process-related hazards too. Think of it as your personalized starting point for the Hazard Analysis process, a crucial step in ensuring food safety.

Join us to explore these changes, and dive into best practices for implementing them.
