Good food safety news from CNN
I happened to be listening to CNN in the car on August 26 when I heard reporter Dan Simon interviewing lettuce growers, safety auditors and Scott Horsfall of the California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement. And it was all good! He called the LGMA an example of food safety that could spread across the country. You can read the transcript – just scroll down until you see Dan Simon’s name.
In an era where food safety news is often about illness, proposed legislation or regulation, and lawsuits, it was refreshing to hear that our industry’s efforts were lifted up as a positive move that others (in our industry or elsewhere) should emulate.
Big pats on the back to everyone involved in the interviews – whether on camera or behind the scenes. It’s so important that we keep telling our stories – about taste, nutrition, safety, etc. We can use all the good press we can get!
