Food Safety in the Citrus Industry

Fresh citrus has a perfect record when it comes to food safety. There has never been a food borne illness connected to fresh citrus. To maintain that safety record citrus growers follow good agriculture practices and adhere to food safety plans to assure consumers only receive the freshest, safest, and most nutritious oranges, lemons, mandarins and grapefruit.
