CSPI to Call for Emergency Regulation for Produce Traceability
Date:7/2/2008

NEWS CONFERENCE TOMORROW (THURSDAY) 10:00 A.M.

WASHINGTON, July 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Food safety advocates will call on the FDA to implement emergency regulation that would require growers and packers of fruits and vegetables to adopt existing technology that would more easily allow those products to be traced back to their farm of origin and other stops along the supply chain. CSPI will reiterate its call for growers to implement written food safety plans. These plans would help to prevent future outbreaks, and improved traceability would allow investigators to more quickly locate the source of outbreaks of foodborne illness.

What: News conference. Display of fresh fruits and vegetables bearing existing stickers of varying degrees of usefulness.

CSPI and Consumer Federation of America releases letter to FDA Commissioner Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach.

Who: Caroline Smith DeWaal, food safety director, CSPI

Chris Waldrop, director, Consumer Federation of America's Food Policy Institute

When: 10:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday, July 3, 2008

Where: National Press Club, 529 14th Street, N.W., Washington, DC. Murrow Room.
