New Produce Safety Alliance Factsheet

The Produce Safety Alliance (PSA) recently posted a factsheet on the Produce Safety Rule subpart E entitled “Agricultural Water System Inspection is Different from the Proposed Agricultural Water Assessment.” According to PSA, “This fact sheet provides information about the differences between an Agricultural Water System Inspection (§ 112.42) and the proposed Agricultural Water Assessment (AgWA) from the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule (PSR).

You can find the final factsheet here.

The PSA also needs your help with the following surveys to develop education materials that are relevant and timely:

  • PSA/NECAFS Lookback Survey (available in English and Spanish) to help understand the costs and barriers of beginning or expanding food safety practices on farms and packinghouses. The results from this international survey will help to inform the development of educational materials. The survey is set to close June 1st, depending on the number of responses received!
  • A very short Spanish-language survey to ask stakeholders to rank Spanish-language podcast topics. Please circulate to your Spanish-speaking stakeholders (including growers and educators).
