The FDA’s Produce Safety Rule has raised some questions regarding the current requirements for water testings, particularly using EPA method 1603. While FDA’s guidance on these requirements is forthcoming, some efforts have been taken to determine if this method can be practically implemented. This webinar will share the findings of recent bench studies conducted in Arizona comparing the EPA 1603 and the SM 9223B methods. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear about the findings!
