Many food safety issues that occur in postharvest unit operations are associated with: 1. Cross contamination between contaminated and uncontaminated produce during washing, or 2. Improper cleaning and disinfection of tools, equipment, and facilities used during packing and holding of produce. For these reasons, we will focus on proper use of two commonly used sanitizers, chlorine and peroxyacetic acid (PAA) during postharvest washing as well as how to develop a robust sanitation program for your farm or packinghouse.
