ChloroFields Commitment to Food Safety: 2015 Initiative
Ironically, in 2015, Chlorofields announced a new food safety initiative featuring its new trademark seal, the FSP, which it called the “capstone of the company’s commitment to food safety , good manufacturing practices, and customer’s expectation of quality and reliability.” It stated that “the lab will be used to identify risks of food pathogens such as E. coli, salmonella, an listeria monocytogenes.” This was heralded as a positive action, especially in light of myriad recalls and outbreaks linked to consumption of sprouts contaminated with pathogens like E. coli, salmonella, and Listeria.
Sprouts are notoriously difficult to clean and have been removed from many menus due to the difficulty in controlling the spread of such pathogens.
