IRVINE, Calif., (May 18, 2020) -- Mandatory government food safety audits of leafy greens farms under the California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement are continuing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Announced today by Western Growers (WG) and the California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement (CA LGMA), is the availability of a new process developed through a collaboration with iFoodDecisionSciences (iFoodDS), that streamlines all verification documents and data for online review by government auditors.

Cal-OES State Operations Center made a number of surgical masks and cloth masks available for farmworkers and other agricultural employees, with the cloth masks intended specifically for migrant housing facilities. These have shipped to County Ag Commissioners’ (CAC) offices and will be made available according to local needs. This is a one-time emergency shipment to fill the gap while the supply chain catches up with high-volume demand.
