Produce Safety

Through the Produce Safety Project at Georgetown University, Pew seeks to address a variety of threats to the nation’s food supply. These include preventing contamination of domestically produced fruits and vegetables, ensuring the safety of imported foods and improving the surveillance systems that alert consumers to food-borne illness outbreaks.

The Produce Safety Project seeks, among other immediate goals, the establishment by the Food and Drug Administration of mandatory and enforceable safety standards for domestic and imported fresh produce, from farm to fork.

Pew is no longer active in this line of work, but for more information: view the materials below, visit the Produce Safety Project's Web site, or visit the  Produce Safety Project on
