Soil Summits

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has RESERVED part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule regarding the application intervals for untreated  Biological Soil Amendments of Animal Origin (BSAAO) that was published in the Federal Register on November 27, 2015. Marking this section as RESERVED was as a result of stakeholder concerns with application intervals in the proposed rule. The FDA is conducting additional research, working with other researchers, and working to conduct a formal risk assessment. The Soil Summits are designed to allow growers and others in the produce industry to provide information and insights that can inform this process to ensure FDA has a good understanding of how untreated BSAAO are used on produce farms and the challenges growers face on implementing practices to reduce risks.
