California LGMA Takes Decertification Action

LGMA members work to provide the safest leafy greens on the market; however, if a company is found to be out of compliance with the food safety standards the program can decertify a member. Although this happens rarely, California LGMA recently decertified a member company.

Advancing Food Safety Through Collaboration

Last week California LGMA hosted U.S. Food and Drug Administration Officials on a tour featuring farming practices, harvest practices, equipment design and sanitation as well as processing facilities.

The Big Picture

They Bystander Effect and Food Safety

On May 24, 2022, a lone gunman entered an elementary school in Uvalde, TX and shot and killed 19 students and two teachers, injuring 18 others. In addition to the lives lost and injured, the additional tragedy was the lack of action by the police and others charged with public safety. Why did this happen? Police clearly knew they should enter the premises and take out the shooter. Numerous studies on the so-called “bystander effect” have shown that people in large group settings are less likely to step up in an emergency. In fact, studies show the bigger the group, the less likely it is anyone will help.
