Food Safety Modernization Act to reform food safety

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Vermonters are getting a say on a new law that some say will significantly affect the state's fruit and vegetable farmers.

The Food Safety Modernization Act is considered the most sweeping reform of food safety in 70 years.

It contains new rules for produce safety which would mean changes for Vermont growers.

On November 4 the Vermont Agriculture Agency will hold a webinar for comments. Those comments will then be submitted to the national agency.

President Barack Obama signed the law in 2011.
