Field Appointments with Federal Relief Personnel for Industry Members Impacted by Recent Wildfires and Santa Ana Winds
The California Avocado Commission and University of California Cooperative Extension are coordinating with the USDA’s Farm Service Agency and the Natural Resources Conservation Service on the availability of field appointments for growers who have been impacted by the Thomas Fire.
The Food Safety Modernization Act’s (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule prohibits the distribution of produce that drops to the ground before harvesting. The Commission just received notification that effective November 21, 2017, the California Code of Regulations no longer allows for maturity testing of avocados after a wind fall event, making any harvesting of wind fall avocados illegal.
