Resources for Food Producers in Flooded Areas Due To Hurricane Michael
Oct 11, 2018
Among those in Hurricane Michael's path in the Southeast U.S. are farmers and their fields of crops grown for human consumption. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition has several resources to help growers who may be affected by the impacts to their crops from severe weather conditions.
FDA’s Guidance for Industry: Evaluating the Safety of Flood-affected Food Crops for Human Consumption
provides the information that producers can use as they assess potential damage to their food crops. This guidance is an important resource for the growers who produce and market these crops, as they are responsible for assuring the safety of flood-affected food crops for human consumption.
