Western Growers (WG) continues to support the ongoing improvement, enhancement and strengthening of food safety in the production of leafy greens. WG has established a yearly review process to review and update the food safety guidance documents (LGMA metrics) utilized by the Leafy Green Marketing Agreements (LGMAs) in California and Arizona.
On November 25, Western Growers is sponsoring a webinar focusing on Listeria and fresh produce. Though this sometimes deadly pathogen has not typically been associated with fresh produce, in the last few years two major outbreaks linking the two have changed how Listeriosis is viewed by regulators and the ag industry.
Some people view traceability as a component of their recall program; however, others including regulators view traceability much differently as food safety issues unfold. This free webinar will provide participants with an overview of key components of a recall program and the key elements of the action once a recall takes place. Participants will also be walked through key traceability concepts and be briefed on how regulations will impact future traceability requirements.
