Jim Gorny, senior adviser for produce safety at the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, agreed but pointed out there are a number of reasons for the agency’s shipping point focus.

He said the origination points are where most of the epic outbreaks began and said Congress directed the agency to focus on the start of the chain.
