The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced earlier that it proposed two new food safety rules that will help prevent foodborne illness. The proposed rules implement the Food Safety Modernization Act, or FSMA, and are available for public comment for the next 120 days, the FDA said. These two FSMA rules are part of an integrated reform effort that focuses on prevention and addresses the safety of foods produced domestically and imported, with additional rules to be published shortly. The first rule proposed would require makers of food to be sold in the United States, whether produced at a foreign- or domestic-based facility, to develop a formal plan for preventing their food products from causing foodborne illness. The rule would also require them to have plans for correcting any problems that arise. The FDA is proposing that many food manufacturers be in compliance with the new preventive controls rules one year after the final rules are published in the Federal Register but small and very small businesses would be given additional time. The FDA also seeks public comment on the second proposed rule, which proposes enforceable safety standards for the production and harvesting of produce on farms. This rule proposes science- and risk-based standards for the safe production and harvesting of fruits and vegetables. The FDA is proposing that larger farms be in compliance with most of the produce safety requirements 26 months after the final rule is published in the Federal Register. Small and very small farms would have additional time to comply, and all farms would have additional time to comply with certain requirements related to water quality. The FDA seeks public comment on this proposal, it stated.

07:09 EDTHSYDeutsche Bank cuts Hershey on valuation, fundamental concerns
Deutsche Bank downgraded Hershey to Hold from Buy citing valuation, saying the stock is trading at a 25% premium to peers. Deutsche also has some fundamental concerns, as it believes the U.S. category could get more promotional with privately-held Mars trying to regain market share. It also thinks high end chocolate is increasing share in the U.S., and notes Hershey continues to be underrepresented in that segment. Deutsche raised its price target for Hershey shares to $111 from $109 to go along with the downgrade.
