Applied Farm Food Safety
AbstractRecently there have been more and more foodborne illnesses being associated with fresh vegetable produce. In response to this, consumer confidence has been lowered with the safety of the vegetable industry. So, many retailers have recently announced programs requiring growers to have independent third-party inspections. The goal with this essay is to introduce a vegetable farm and reveal its food safety procedures from the seeding through shipping,. reviewing, evaluating, and strengthening current good agricultural practices (GAPs) used on the farm and good manufacturing practices (GMPs) used in packing facilities, and the recall system which also can reduce microbial risks.
