However, the group raised questions about what requirements would be for foods that are subject to the sanitary transportation rule but are the property of a single entity that acts as shipper, carrier and receiver. The group suggests an intracompany supplier verification exemption.

The grocery manufacturers group also questioned the need for record keeping on foods that require refrigeration for quality purposes only, stating the costs associated with that documentation would not have a positive impact on public health.

Groups that joined in the deadline extension request are:

  •  Agricultural Retailers Association
  •  American Farm Bureau Federation
  •  American Feed Industry Association
  •  American Trucking Associations
  •  Corn Refiners Association
  •  Fresh Produce Association of the Americas
  •  Grocery Manufacturers Association
  •  Idaho Trucking Association
  •  Institute of Shortening and Edible Oils
  •  National Barley Growers Association
  •  National Association of Manufacturers
  •  National Chicken Council
  •  National Cotton Council
  •  National Council of Farmer Cooperatives
  •  National Grain and Feed Association
  •  National Oilseed Processors Association
  •  National Renderers Association
  •  National Turkey Federation
  •  North American Millers’ Association
  •  Pet Food Institute
  •  Transportation Intermediaries Association
  •  United Fresh Produce Association
