Last week, Western Growers submitted comments to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)  on two proposed rules related to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FMSA).  Western Growers provided comments on the “Standards for the Growing, Harvesting, Packing and Holding of Produce for Human Consumption,” known as the “Produce Rule,” as well as the “Current Good Manufacturing Practice and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food” also known as “Preventive Controls Rule.”
