Melons constitute one of the most important farm produce that is usually cultivated in the United States. Hence, this draft guidance was highly inevitable in order to assist both the local as well as foreign firms which are involved in the exportation of the melons (Food and Drug Administration, 2009). This is because the draft guidance is mostly concerned with ensuring that there is a drastic reduction of the chances of microbial food safety hazards in the entire supply chain of the melons and their products in all levels of production, that is, from the farm level to the foodservice or retail level. However, this requires adherence to the recommendations that have been proposed in this draft guideline as the starting point from which all the other melon safety programs should be evaluated against.
