Fruit and Vegetable Quality Control Program

quality1The Fruit and Vegetable Quality Control Program is responsible for assuring that fruits, nuts, and vegetables entering the marketplace meet the minimum marking, container and quality standards set by the California Department of Food and Agriculture. The main crops tested in Madera County are apples, grapes, and pomegranates. This testing ensures that products of unacceptable maturity are not entering the marketplace.

The Egg Quality Control Program provides for the enforcement of regulations pertaining to quality, weight and marking requirements for shell eggs. Eggs are inspected throughout the County at various retail and wholesale establishments, or when there is reasonable cause to believe there is a violation of any law or regulation, and upon receiving a consumer complaint. Eggs are inspected with a candling device and egg scale, which enable the inspector to determine the condition of the eggshell and the quality of its contents.
