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!
