Raising the standards_How nickel-containing stainless steel make food safer

How nickel-containing stainless steel make food safer

The FDA considered this Listeriosis outbreak to be “yet another reason to fully implement the Food Safety Modernization Act” (FSMA) which was signed into law on January 4, 2011. The Act aims to ensure the US food supply is safe by shifting the focus of federal regulators from responding to contamination to preventing it, and provides the FDA with the authority to require preventive controls across the food supply chain; perform inspections and ensure compliance; recall contaminated food and ensure imported foods meet US standards.

Are these standards met in the EU.? 
The arguements are well illustrated in the Ni-Institute News Letter under the following 3 paragraphe headed as follows:

The full letter may be consulted at the link beleow. 

Raising the standards:

"A fifth of all nickel production is destined for food contact materials, primarily stainless steel, which because of its outstanding properties meets the stringent requirements of the industry. To ensure that food is completely safe, standards and guidelines for equipment must be adhered to. Yet there are many different standards, by different organizations, in different countries, with different approaches, even if they have the same ultimate goal. Some standards are mandatory, others are voluntary, and they are regularly updated to address new concerns."

-A stainless steel for every application.


-Not just clean and shiny.
