A new research report from the food industry shows investigations of leafy greens foodborne illness outbreaks could be streamlined if produce was labeled with traceable codes, something food safety experts have been urging for decades.

For four months food industry researchers reviewed supply chain partners including growers, distributors and both independent and chain retailers, “offering a detailed response to the request by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for improved traceability in the food system,” according to a group announcement from the six industry groups that conducted the pilot projects.

This story was originally published on Civil Eats.

Every time Lula Cooley dropped off food boxes at Black churches or on the doorsteps of low-income senior citizens in Laurel, Mississippi, she was met with jubilation. “‘Acorn squash, sweet corn, green peas, watermelon! Thank you, Jesus!’ They just went on and on,” said Cooley, who is retired and works as the city’s senior center coordinator. “I cannot express what these food boxes meant to so many people.”

The boxes — part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Farmers to Families Food Box program — came overflowing with produce grown by small-scale, Black-owned farms in the South. And they were delivered to … Read more
