Food safety study to focus on leafy greens, tomatoes

Scott Horsfall, chief executive officer of the California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement, also said it was important that the Maryland study not duplicate research done by the Center for Produce Safety and other organizations.

But Horsfall said that the more food safety research, the better.

“There are plenty of things we need to know more about, so the fact that there’s more science on the way is a great thing,” he said.

The Agreement is not a partner in the study, and Horsfall is not on the advisory council.

I believe there is no better place than your own garden, for those who don't have the space for a garden, you may want to look into gourmet storable food. Check us out on facebook. Steve Mynhier

My idea is to Vaccinate the fileds with pathogens. After all plants are lving being. They should be reacting to it the same way we do Totally Eliminating the cross contamination from animal feces or any other type is next to impossible, you can do only so much,, protect your field just enough
