In regards to the Produce Safety Rule, the FDA announced that effective immediately, they will now exercise enforcement discretion for certain commodities, such as almonds, hops, pulse crops, and grapes. These commodities may be eligible for “the commercial processing exemption.” Therefore, “This means that [the FDA] will not expect entities growing, harvesting, packing, or holding these commodities to meet any of the Produce Safety Regulation requirements with respect to these commodities.”

The Tentamus Group, in particular, Tentamus North America, offers various services to assist in compliance with the Produce Safety Rule and other the new regulations:
  • Testing sprouts for Listeria monocytogenes
  • Testing agricultural water for coli (compliance with specifications)
  • Consulting services (e.g. if the customer is affected by the rule or what measures need to be taken)
  • Hygiene training of employees
  • Investigating and assisting in recall corrective actions (such as the recent outbreak in avocados
  • Conducting risk assessment for the use of fertilizer and compost in growing crops covered by the Produce Safety rule
