Surprise: United, PMA on the rarely raw exclusion

From PMA’s executive summary of the produce rule, agreement:

 Produce rarely consumed raw exclusion: PMA opposes the use of a list of exempted commodities based on consumer preparation for consumption and recommends that this exemption be eliminated. PMA does not support the approach of using a commodity-specific list of exempt products based on currently likely means of consumer preparation and consumption for produce commodities.




I have to say I’m surprised with the comments from the national association on this point, though I understand their argument generally against exemptions and exclusions. I haven’t seen comments from the National Potato Council yet on the FDA’s proposed produce rule, but I have to believe those comments will differ in substance from what we hear from PMA and United Fresh.
