Understanding and implementing the FSMA Produce Safety Rule
The FSMA Produce Safety Rule established standards for growing, harvesting, packing and holding fresh produce on the farm in an effort to prevent potential microbial contamination and reduce food borne illnesses. To help growers prepare for implementation of the Produce Safety Rule, PDA and Penn State Extension have teamed up to offer On-Farm Readiness Reviews. An On-Farm Readiness Review, or OFRR, is a voluntary program and consists of a non-regulatory, pre-inspectional visit. This is a confidential service, and best of all, it’s at no cost!
