A new training tool for leafy greens workers in California is set for an all-star, online launch Nov. 19 as the Food and Drug Administration’s deputy commissioner for foods joins the California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement staff to unveil a new video.
The California LGMA partnered with the non-profit group STOP Foodborne Illness — formerly Safe Tables Our Priority — to produce the video, according to a news release. The organizations plan an Internet press conference with FDA’s Mike Taylor at 11 a.m. Pacific time, Nov. 19.

The video takes a personal approach, telling the stories of people whose lives have been touched by foodborne illnesses to show leafy greens workers why attention to food safety protocols is important, according to the release.
Also scheduled to participate in the Web event are Ryan Talley, chairman of the California LGMA, Dan Sutton, LGMA member, and Deirdre Schlunegger and Lauren Bush from STOP Foodborne Illness.
