News Tip

September is National Food Safety Education Month

The USDA Office of Food Safety and Inspection [FSIS] is reminding the public to think about health and safety in the kitchen. Consumers are encouraged to practice behaviors that will continue to help keep them and their loved ones safe from foodborne illness.

FSIS resources can teach consumers how to practice the four steps of food safety – 

_Clean

_Separate

_Cook

_Chill – and reduce their risk of foodborne illness. 

Families interested in learning about food safety together can find age appropriate food safety lessons on FSIS’ webpage Food Safety Education Resources for Families, by following @USDAFoodSafety on Twitter, and by liking Facebook.com/FoodSafety.gov

Consumers with questions about food safety can call the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, in English or Spanish - or email to mphotline@usda.gov

Consumers can also chat live at https://ask.usda.gov/
