I find the UC Food Blog on the water quality used on foods that are usually consumed raw confusing. Are such foods safe to consume or are they not? The Food Blog is almost always unequivocal in its recommendations.

Hello Jack,  
FSMA regulations aim to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing it. The workshops serve to raise awareness of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule. There’s always potential for contamination through the pre and post-harvest continuum but the new standards reduce the possibility of contamination of food products from the farm to the consumer – including raw nuts. This is good news for the consumer.  
Feel free to come to a future workshop or e-mail the researchers directly.
