Where to get Information About the Food Safety Modernization Act’s Produce Safety Rule

Florida BlueberriesThe new Produce Safety Rule in the Food Safety Modernization Act was one of the major topics of discussion at the recent Southeast Regional Fruit and Vegetable Conference in Savannah, Georgia. We caught up with Dr. David Gombas, senior vice president of food safety and technology at the United Fresh Produce Association, to find out what growers need to know.

Dr. Gombas says most growers won’t have to completely change their operation, because if you are already compliant with the current rules, then you are most likely compliant with the new produce safety rules. He cautions everyone to not solely rely on this though, and to be sure and double check that all of your bases are covered.
