The National Food Processors Association (NFPA) has announced the availability of a new guidance document for the fresh-cut produce industry.  The document, titled “Field Cored Lettuce – Best Practices,” is a compilation of food safety practices for harvesting and handling iceberg lettuce that is cored in the field. 

“Field Cored Lettuce – Best Practices” was developed in cooperation with the International Fresh-Cut Produce Association and United Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Association.

 For more information on this document, contact Michael Jantschke, Senior Scientist in NFPA’s Center for Technical Assistance in Dublin, California, at (925) 551-4251, or via email at
