Sanitary Transportation Practices & FDA Requirements.
The FDA requires companies that transport human and animal food to comply with sanitary transportation practices to ensure that food transported by motor vehicles or rail avoids conditions that may cause adulteration or contamination. A part of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the rule on Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food is designed to protect foods from farm to table.
