In a response to the food safety problem, organizations including the American Peanut Council, Birdsong Peanuts, and JLA USA conducted listening sessions with farmers in peanut-growing regions. Growers were asked to detail where food safety risks could exist at the grower level and to offer solutions to reduce the likelihood.
