Guide Safeguards Fresh Produce Operations Against Listeria

The United Fresh Food Safety & Technology Council’s Guidance on Environmental Monitoring and Control of Listeria for the Fresh Produce Industry assists in developing practical and scientifically sound “search and destroy” programs for Listeria. Guide is applicable to all fresh and fresh-cut produce operations, including field and field packing, packinghouse, and other produce handling operations such as repack, value-added, and transport/distribution to retail/foodservice. It can help companies determine an operations’ level of vulnerability to Listeria harborage that may lead to produce contamination, and also help develop and implement an effective Listeria monitoring and control program.
