The University of Maryland is conducting a food safety survey to better understand how the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act proposed produce rule will impact you. The goal is to identify the current usage and cost burden of the kinds of food safety risk-reduction measures specified by the rule to determine how the rule will affect different types of growers.
This survey is intended for farm owners and managers growing vegetables or fruit. It takes about 10 minutes to complete, and it will remain open through the end of March. This research is very policy-relevant and could help guide future produce safety legislation, so all vegetable and fruit growers are encouraged to participate.
Participants have the opportunity to enter a drawing for a free Apple iPad after completing the survey.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Professor Erik Lichtenberg by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone at (301) 405-1279. And thanks for your help!
