The FDA published two guidance documents that outline recommendations for how sprout operations may comply with the Produce Safety Rule. The first is guidance (Guidance for Industry: Standards for the Growing, Harvesting, Packing, and Holding of Sprouts for Human Consumption) that updates and finalizes the following sections of the January 2017 Draft Guidance entitled Compliance with and Recommendations for Implementation of the Standards for the Growing, Harvesting, Packing, and Holding of Produce for Human Consumption for Sprout Operations. The second guidance re-issues certain sections of the January 2017 draft and issues one new section for sprout operations as revised draft guidance. The revised sections are better aligned with other guidelines, incorporate additional information and comments from the agency, and better consolidate and organize information within the guidance. The revised draft guidance is available for comment.@ https://www.fda.gov/food/cfsan-constituent-updates/fda-finalizes-draft-guidance-sprout-operations-under-produce-safety-rule-releases-certain-sections?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
