Staying in the vein of food safety, today I’m sending you to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s website — specifically, the section of their website which deals with food safety and nutrition.
From their website:
The food landscape in this country is ever changing. And USDA is involved in managing those changes as related to many areas of food processing and food distribution. From the inspection of domestic product, imports, and exports; conducting risk assessments; and educating the public about the importance of food safety, USDA is there.
USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) ensures that our nation’s meat, poultry and processed egg supply is wholesome, safe and properly labeled. Through prevention-based policies and practices, USDA is meeting the foodborne challenges of the 21st century head on and using science to craft the best way forward.
Which basically all boils down to this: “Here’s everything you need to know about how your food is kept safe, ever.”
Seems like a pretty good website to keep your back pocket.
From, food and nutrition, food labeling and food security, to USDA Quality Standards and food safety blogs, the USDA is a wealth of information and can provide answers to lots of food-related questions.
