The Produce Safety Project: a great resource for produce water quality management

Here’s a good resource for professionals involved with produce water quality management: The Produce Safety Project at Georgetown University seeks the establishment by the Food and Drug Administration  of mandatory and enforceable safety standards for domestic and imported fresh produce, from farm to fork.  Our families need to have confidence that federal food-safety regulation is based on prevention, scientifically sound risk assessment and management, and coordinated, integrated data collection.

The whole website is worth regular review if you’re responsible for FDA (GRAS) issues related to produce water quality management, but here are some of the site’s resources we found of immediate value:

Cost of Foodborne Illness
