Processors of frozen and canned produce are studying how best to take advantage of a new ruling by the Food and Drug Administration allowing frozen and canned fruits and vegetables to be labeled "healthy." Using that term to describe all fresh fruits and vegetables has been allowed since 1994, but no such broad allowance was made at that time for frozen or canned fruits and vegetables.
