Title: Gateway to Government Food Safety Information
Url: https://www.foodsafety.gov/
Publisher: United States. Food and Drug Administration.
Description: Given all the recent concern about different foodborne pathogens in the news and on television, this site (sponsored by the US federal government) will help answer a variety of questions that consumers and persons in the food industry may have about any number of related topics. For consumers with questions about preparing food and purchasing food from the supermarket, the site has a very helpful section titled Consumer Advice that deals with topics such as food handling, where to report complaints about food products, and seasonal advice tips. A specific section for young persons and educators provides additional materials, such as lesson plans and educational quizzes on food safety. Rounding out the site is a section featuring video broadcasts, which include food safety conference meetings, and an area devoted to current and timely news items related to food safety from different governmental agencies.
