United Fresh Produce Association

Electronic (digital download/no shipping)

Members & Non-Members - $0.00


Listeria monocytogenes is recognized as a pathogen of concern in fresh produce handling and processing operations. This guidance is intended to be applicable to all fresh and fresh-cut produce operations, including field and field packing, packinghouses, and other produce handling operations including re-pack, value-added and transport/distribution to retail/foodservice, recognizing that vulnerability to L. monocytogenes contamination and entrenchment in equipment or a facility will depend on the type(s) and production region of the commodities handled and the nature of the handling. All produce handling operations are encouraged to use this guidance along with other resources 1) to determine their level of vulnerability to Listeria harborage that may lead to produce contamination and 2) if vulnerable, to develop and implement an effective Listeria monitoring and control program.
