Fresh fruits and vegetables are critical to a healthy, well-balanced diet; however, produce has been implicated in a number of foodborne illness outbreaks in recent years, significantly impacting the health of consumers and the economic viability of farms and packing-house operations. The Fruit and Vegetable Safety and Quality (FVSQ) Professional Development Group (PDG) was established in 1998 and provides a forum to discuss items of interest in the safe production, harvest, and handling of high quality fruit and vegetable products.
