VDACS Contacting Produce Farmers on New Federal Law

veggiesThe Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is administering the produce safety law in Virginia. The law is designed to emphasize prevention of disease outbreaks caused by fresh produce through a few basic principles such as sanitation, water quality, and worker training.

VDACS staff have begun contacting producers by phone to assist them in determining whether they will be affected by the law and to gather additional information. Any VDACS employee who calls you will identify himself or herself as such. For more information or to be included among the affected farms, call 804-786-4003 or visit vaproducesafety.com.
