Western Growers (WG) has developed an industry guidance document, “Grower/Shipper/Handler Guide to Food and Drug Administration Assignment Sampling Visits,” which is available to WG members online here. This document is intended to provide information and suggested guidelines for WG members to follow during FDA sampling visits.

Additionally, WG has revised the Salinas Valley Surveillance Sampling Assignment Q&A Document, which answers immediate questions WG members may have during FDA’s current ongoing assignment.

If you have any specific questions or concerns regarding surveillance sampling, contact WG’s Science staff at
