FSMA Produce Safety Rule - Coverage and Exemption Tool
The Produce Safety Rule is one of the new federal food safety regulations written under the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, and sprouts covered under this regulation includes only those that are 1) likely to be eaten raw, and 2) grown on farms with average annual produce sales of at least $25,000. Exemptions to the rule, where only certain parts of the regulation are required, are available to certain growers based on average annual food sales and marketing channels.
The interactivewill take you through a series of questions to determine how the rule effects you, and what you need to do to comply. Additional information and resources are provided at the end of the questionnaire to help you with next steps.
