COVER STORY
FOOD SAFETY
cardboard boxes are cheaper and they
don't have to be printed. No one sees
your cardboard boxes anyway except
the receiver at the grocery store. ... I've
seen companies that give employees a
barcoded badge and they scan the case
as they put it on the pallet and then they
scan their employee badge. Now, you
have 100 percent accurate logging of
who has done what. You don't need to
have that payroll clerk take that tally
sheet and key it at the end of the day,
and it's accurate.
PP: Any advice for small food
producers?
ET: First, I need to differentiate
between good agricultural and food
safety handling versus traceability. I
don't care if you're shipping to a small
convenience store, a one-store grocery
chain or to Walmart - everybody
growing and packaging fresh produce
should be doing it properly from a food
safety perspective. ... Traceability is
part of all food safety programs and
practices, having the ability to trace

and testing that. But it only comes
into play when something goes wrong.
PP: Anything else produce
processors should keep an eye on?
ET: The FDA was required to come
up with regulations for record keeping
for high-risk foods in 2011 for FSMA.
They have not issued or drafted those
regulations yet because the state of
California sued them on some of
the other regulations that came out
in FSMA, so they prioritized those.
Frank Yiannas was named the deputy
commissioner of the FDA late last year,
so I'm anxiously awaiting to see where
that record keeping for high-risk foods
is going to be accelerated. Frank, when
he was at Walmart, was passionate
about protecting consumers' health
and, in the event of a foodborne-illness,
having great traceability mechanisms in
place to identify and pull the product.
Also just as important, in finding out
what product was safe to eat. It doesn't
do the population or businesses any
good when people are throwing out
healthy food that's safe to eat.
