ATTENTION SPROUT GROWERS:  If you haven’t seen it already, read the FDA’s industry guidance on "Reducing Microbial Food Safety Hazards on Sprouted Seeds."  If you have seen it, then see it again.  But don’t stop there:  make your employees see it, and then meet with your staff to determine the best ways to implement anything contained in the FDA guide that you haven’t already.  AND DON’T STOP THERE:  then contribute a little money or time to research and development so that the 33 outbreaks sprouts have caused since 1990 stays at 33 outbreaks, and the FDA stops telling people not to buy or consume your product.  That can’t be good for business.
