FSMA Proposed Rules    

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the federal food safety law that applies to farms growing fruits and vegetables that may be eaten raw. FSMA is intended to reduce the risk of microbial contamination of fresh produce. The law was passed two years ago, but proposed regulations were released in January 2013, for public comment up to September 16, 2013.

Why are there so many mushrooms this fall? Is it safe to eat them?    

Each spring and fall, when the weather is warm and rainy, new crops of
mushrooms seem to sprout almost overnight. Because we’ve had so much
recent rain, it seems like mushrooms are everywhere. You’ll find them on
lawns, in pastures and forests, on mulches of all kinds, on stumps and on
living and dead trees.
