Statement by Jim O'Hara, Director, Produce Safety Project, in Response to the White House Announcement on the Proposed FDA Rule on Produce Safety

WASHINGTON, July 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Obama administration's commitment today to a produce safety rule is a significant public health victory for American families and farmers. Fresh fruits and vegetables are critical to a healthy lifestyle. With this rule consumers can have greater confidence in their fresh fruits and vegetables and growers and producers will have a uniform and science based road map on safety standards.

The Produce Safety Project at Georgetown University seeks the establishment by the Food and Drug Administration of mandatory and enforceable safety standards for domestic and imported fresh produce, from farm to fork. Our families need to have confidence that federal food safety regulation is based on prevention, scientifically sound risk assessment and management, and coordinated integrated data collection.
