OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) -- The Alabama Cooperative Extension System is offering food safety training to producers who sell at farmers markets.
Officials say the goal is to prevent outbreaks of foodborne illness.
Auburn University professor Jean Weese studies food safety. Weese says, even one outbreak traced back to a farmers market can undermine years of effort that goes into building a customer base.
Reports say the team has already completed 34 training sessions in 32 counties.
