Food Safety Modernization Act Produce Safety Rule Training

A series of Food Safety Modernization Act produce safety rule training and registration information can be found on the website https://ag.purdue.edu/extension/safeproduce/Pages/FSMA-Training.aspx. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of growers. Modules 1 through 6 align with sections outlined in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule.  Module 7 is focused on helping growers develop a written farm food safety plan. The farm food safety plan is not required by the FSMA Produce Safety Rule, it is included in the curriculum because growers expressed a need for a plan.
