Comment Period to Revise LGMA-Approved Guidelines Now Closes June 15

The comment period closing date associated with revisions on Pre-harvest Product Testing in the LGMA-approved guidelines has been extended to June 15, 2022 to grant interested parties additional time to draft proposed revisions to the metrics or submit comments. Western Growers will host a web discussion to publicly present and discuss all proposed changes and comments received during the comment period. The webinar date will be confirmed once the comment period concludes.

Stakeholders interested in submitting proposed revisions through this process can submit comments until June 15, 2022 at LeafyGreenGuidance.com.

Proposed changes must be submitted online and meet LGMA criteria to be considered. Proposals should be 1) comprehensive, 2) accompanied by a statement on how proposed changes will enhance food safety, and 3) include a clear and straightforward scientific basis or rationale, including citations of relevant research if available.
