The FDA has proposed that some regulations be tightened for food haulers in the hopes of making the industry a bit safer and to prevent contamination. The proposal will establish sanitary practices for food haulers, including requiring the trucks be inspected for cleanliness prior to being loaded, cleaning the vehicles between loads and setting standards for refridgeration. There will be a public meeting do discuss these proposed regulations on Feb. 27 in Chicago, March 13 in Anaheim, Calif. and March 20 in College Park, Md.. If you are unable to attend these meetings, the FDA is open to hearing your comments and they can be submitted by mail, fax or online.
