This guidance document was a collaborative effort between the AFDO Produce Committee and FDA.  This document provides guidance for state and local retail food jurisdictions when considering an approved food source.  The 2017 Food Code provides a definition of "approved" which has been a source of confusion at retail.  This document helps to provide clarity for both retail food jurisdictions and produce regulatory authorities.
