We routinely use testing as a way to confirm that our food safety and farming systems are working as designed. We do a lot of testing. We test the cleanliness of the water used on our farms and in our packing sheds. We test our fields and facilities for bacteria, such as E. coli and salmonella. We even test for pesticide residues.
We use qualified, third party labs to analyze our samples. We share the results with interested parties including, governmental agencies, retailers, and restaurants.
The FDA and USDA also test product that comes across the international border for pesticide residue and microbial contamination.
