New e-book outlines major issues and best practices for handling fresh produce that every foodservice, retail, and food production manager needs

to know.

ATLANTA, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Fresh produce safety has become a hot topic in recent years as several incidents have raised public awareness and industry concern. At its biennial meeting in San Antonio, Texas, The Conference for Food Protection (CFP -- http://www.foodprotect.org ) highlighted the importance of produce issues by holding a special workshop dedicated to fresh produce safety. The workshop "What is the Future of Global Fresh Produce Safety for Retail and Foodservice?" was moderated by Don Schaffner, PhD, Rutgers University.

The workshop brought together top industry experts to identify key issues and best practices. It covered topics ranging from outbreak surveillance to the role of agricultural producers and processors in assuring fresh produce safety. Presenters included experts from leading industry organizations, businesses, and government agencies, such as the CDC, FDA, McDonald's, Hannaford Supermarkets, and United Fresh Produce Association.

Chemstar Corporation, a global leader in food safety and sanitation solutions, commissioned Lydia Strayer, Director of Food Safety and Regulatory Affairs, to observe the pre-conference workshop and summarize the recommendations of the presenters. As part of its ongoing effort to provide industry-related food safety information, Chemstar has made the findings and recommendations from this workshop widely available by publishing them in a free, downloadable e-book.
