Food Safety Fact Sheets

July 28th, 2008

What with recent summer media attention paid to pathogens in the food supply—namely mass-quantity/processed fresh produce (tomatoes, peppers, etc.)–you may be experiencing some growing interest in food safety.

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service offers a handy menu of fact sheets suitable for home use or outreach efforts and instruction. Fact sheets address safe food handling, generally, and handling as recommended for particular food products, foodborne illness, emergency preparedness and food labeling, among other topics. Many guides are available in both English and Spanish languages.
