FDA’s New Traceability Rule Will Disproportionately Impact Smaller Grocers

November 17, 2022 8:43 AM | Campbell (Administrator)

The rule aims to establish additional traceability recordkeeping requirements for persons who manufacture, process, pack or hold foods the FDA has designated for inclusion on the Food Traceability List (FTL). Specifically, the rule requires these entities to establish and maintain records containing Key Data Elements (KDEs) associated with different Critical Tracking Events (CTEs). The compliance date for all persons subject to the recordkeeping requirements is Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2026.
