SafeFood© and the New Year
A new year is full of promise and hope. Let’s hope the talk in 2010 about improving the safety of food from farm to fork comes to fruition. Let’s hope the Food Safety Modernization Act, which expanded authority for government inspections and established on farm food safety requirements (for producers meeting certain dollar volumes) is funded properly. Let’s hope folks realize people practices can make or prevent a foodborne illness outbreak - and act accordingly. Let’s hope awareness about food safety translates into actions – and good practices become a habit. Happy New Year – and a hope your 2011 is foodborne illness free!
