New video helps produce farmers understand the FSMA Produce Safety Rule

Do you have questions about the the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule and how the new regulations might affect you and your produce farm? The UMN Extension On-Farm Food Safety Program has created a new video FSMA Produce Safety Rule: How does it apply to my farm? to help guide you through this new regulation that applies to some produce farmers in the state.

This topic can be complex, and there are few other national resources that provide a succinct yet accurate overview of the rule and who and what it covers. So we made one!

In 7 minutes this video will walk you through the basics of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule and provide an overview of the regulations. You’ll be guided through the process of determining if your farm is not covered, qualified exempt, or fully covered by the rule; and you’ll find out what those categories mean. Finally, you’ll learn about the next steps to take depending on which category your farm falls under. You’ll find links to valuable resources listed in the description section below the video.
