Proposed Marketing Agreement for Leafy Greens  
Leafy Greens Logo
National Marketing Agreement Regulating Leafy Green Vegetables; Termination of Proceeding on Proposed Marketing Agreement. Docket Number: AO-FV-09-0138; AMS-FV-09-0029; FV09-970-1.

USDA has determined that recent developments, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administrationís publication of proposed rules under the Food Safety Modernization Act, could affect fundamental aspects of the proposed marketing agreement. The program, as proposed by the industry, would have regulated the handling of cabbage, lettuce, spinach and other vegetables defined as leafy greens marketed in the United States.

Termination of the proceeding will allow USDA to discuss recent developments with interested parties, and consider the evolving needs of the industry and consumers.
