Environmental contamination by Listeria monocytogenes poses a challenge within many packing or processing environments across the entire food industry. Recognizing the importance of preventing initial contamination of whole fruit and to keep their members amongst those at the forefront of food safety, the Washington State Tree Fruit Association proactively approached United Fresh Produce Association to collaborate on a Listeria and environmental monitoring training program specific for the tree fruit industry. Though the focus is on tree fruit within the pacific northwest (apples, pears, and cherries), this training document is applicable to a variety of tree fruit in any region.
