The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a finalized rule under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) that is intended to help prevent the contamination of human and animal food during transportation. Among other things, the sanitary transportation rule requires those transporting food by motor or rail vehicle to follow recog- nized best practices for hygiene, including the provision of appropriate temperature control, cleaning between loads and security measures. The rule was initially proposed in February 2014 and its final iteration took into consideration the comments of some 200 stakeholders. See Federal Register, April 6, 2016.
