11:38 a.m. Karst: As far as what happens to the farming operation that was linked to the outbreak, is it something they can do to plow over and the next crop will be fine?

11:39 a.m. Gombas: It depends on what actually went wrong. If it was a perfect storm of events that led to contamination, the chances of that happening again are pretty slim. But without knowing what it is, it could happen again. That is why for all of these outbreaks, we go to FDA and we say you’ve got to do a good enough investigation to figure out what went wrong so that we can prevent it from ever happening again.
