Dueling Food Safety Websites

Two excellent food safety web sites were introduced this week:  Food Safety News and FoodSafety.gov.


Food Safety News is the brain child of Bill Marler, a nationally recognized food safety and food borne illness expert. The first articles posted on the site suggest that this will be an excellent resource for those who are interested in food issues. As an example, read the posted article Food Safety Acts Compared: HR 2749 vs. S 510. For more, see Bill Marler Launches OnLine Newspaper, Food Safety News

Another high recommend goes to FoodSafety.gov which was created to be the “the gateway to food safety information provided by government agencies.”

The FoodSafety.gov website explains that:

[t]he federal government will enhance www.foodsafety.gov to better communicate information to the public and include an improved individual alert system allowing consumers to receive food safety information, such as notification of recalls. Agencies will also use social media to expand public communications.

Special features include advice on how to avoid food safety risks that occur more often at certain kinds of events and in certain seasons, how to avoid food safety risks that are higher for specific groups of people and how to locate a state agency in a particular area. KVT
