@FrankYiannasFDA

  • ·       THREAD: Recent produce outbreaks show that we must remain laser-focused on prevention to help bend the curve of foodborne illness. https://bit.ly/37EyEXq  #FDAVoices
  • ·       We must continue to build upon and implement the science- and risk-based controls envisioned by Congress through the Food Safety Modernization Act, including those set forth in the Produce Safety Rule. https://bit.ly/37EyEXq  #FDAVoices
  • ·       On Ag Water, FDA is working on rule-making to propose an approach that offers flexibility & addresses challenges of implementing requirements across the diversity in farm types, water sources, & water uses. We hope to issue proposed revisions to ag water requirements in 2020.

@FDAMedia

  • ·       In our latest #FDAVoices read how the FDA and our state regulatory partners are completing the first year of routine inspections of large farms covered by the Produce Safety Rule, and what’s next for produce safety: https://go.usa.gov/xpzmP
