The Food and Drug Administration is looking to tighten the oversight of produce.
Worker hygiene, undetected animal contact and runoff from animal manure are often difficult to identify as the sources of food-borne illness.
The FDA now hopes to change that with sweeping new rules designed to track how growers, packers, shippers, distributors and retailers handle the produce Americans eat as it travels from the
farm to table.
