Regulatory produce inspections are taking place to verify compliance with the FDA’s Produce Safety rule in the United States. These farm inspections are executed by 42 state departments of agriculture and 2 departments of health that have cooperative agreements with FDA. The National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) plays a key role in supporting successful collaboration and communication between regulatory agencies (state and federal) and produce stakeholders. Our featured speaker, Mr. Bob Ehart - the Senior Policy and Science Advisor for NASDA, addressed the status of these farm inspections as well as provided an overview of current findings and learnings.
