2011 Flood Awareness Fact Sheet from NYS Office of Emergency Management

Attention all farmers:

Food Safety of Crops and Animal Feed Following Flooding
While many farms in New York are rebounding from the devastating impact of Tropical Storm Irene, more information is becoming available to farmers who were impacted. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising growers that any food that has been submerged in flood water should be destroyed and not used for human or animal consumption. This includes crops, fruits, vegetables and food requiring refrigeration or freezing. More information is available through FDA and your local Cornell Cooperative Extension.
