  3. CONTACT's Clarify The Confusing: Rarely Consumed Raw

    Jan 19, 2023

    The Produce Safety Rule outlines the minimum food safety standards for the growing, harvesting, packing, and holding of produce for human consumption; and is a part of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

    Did you know that produce that is rarely consumed raw doesn’t have to comply with the Produce Safety Rule? Such as asparagus, coffee beans, and potatoes, to name a few. Ever wonder how we know whether something is rarely consumed raw (and can protect our health by not eating it uncooked)?
