WG has been working with iDecisionSciences, LLC on a project to release a fully-revised version of the LGMA-approved metrics. This effort is beyond the current annual LGMA-approved metrics amendment process managed by WG. This initiative incorporates peer-reviewed research presented at the Center of Produce Safety Symposiums, input from an independent expert review panel, the Harmonized Food Safety Standard and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Produce Safety Rule. As a result, a revised LGMA audit checklist could be in place later this year.

During the Arizona and California LGMA leadership meeting hosted on January 29, these proposed changes were considered/approved in California only. Arizona will consider/discuss them later this year. Best practices related to the management of cadmium in spinach fields are effective now in California, audits to verify them will start on April 1st.
