FDA issues guidelines for fresh-cut produce

The Food and Drug Administration has issued its first set of safety guidelines for the way fresh-cut produce companies process precut vegetables.
Eight outbreaks have been traced to the Salinas valley in California in the past decade, according to the FDA, reports the Monterey County Herald.
The 64-page document focuses strictly on activities in processing facilities, particularly those involving workers’ hygiene – something that most company facilities are already doing. However, by making the guidelines mandatory, smaller operations can meet the same hygiene requirements.
