[ARCHIVED] CDC & Food Safety

Foodsafety_spotlight

Foodborne illness is a common, costly—yet preventable—public health problem. CDC estimates that 1 in 6 Americans get sick from contaminated foods or beverages each year, and 3,000 die. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates that food borne illnesses cost more than $15.6 billion each year.

The CDC’s food safety website has a new tool that provides updated, at-a-glance information on food recalls from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Click within the widget for more information on each recall, including links to full recall notices on agency websites. Scroll through the widget to see information on older recalls. You can embed the free widget on your website to share food recall information.
