The leafy green sector continues to address challenges associated with the current leafy greens food safety landscape. Industry-wide collaborative efforts across government entities, trade associations, universities, and individual companies are imperative to address produce safety challenges.

In this webinar, Western Growers, Arizona and California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreements, Monterey County Farm Bureau, Yuma Safe Produce Council, and University of California at Davis will discuss current food safety initiatives and activities.

Recurrent outbreaks associated with leafy greens have increased concerns related to land uses adjacent to leafy green operations. Recently, the Fall 2020 U.S. Food and Drug Administration Investigation Report stated that based on their investigation, the likely contributing factor for pathogenic E. coli contamination of leafy greens has been the proximity of cattle. With the increasingly evident relationship between cattle and leafy green outbreaks, questions regarding the possibility of advancing vaccination in cattle are increasing.
