Makers of unpasteurised fruit and vegetable juices must take new safety steps to ensure products are not contaminated with salmonella or other germs, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ruled on Thursday. Under the new rules, if juice makers do not pasteurise they must take other steps to kill the germs such as ultraviolet light treatment. They must also have a system in place to prove that the juice is safe, and some companies will be obliged to test juice before shipping in order to prove that there is no contamination. The FDA hopes that this rule could prevent 6,000 Americans a year from being sickened.
