Food Safety On The Move

The Partnership for Food Safety Education’s mission is to end illness and death from foodborne infection in the United States.

food-safety-1I subscribe to the newsletter from Partnership for Food Safety Education. The newsletter provides great information about how to help prevent foodborne illnesses.  With Memorial Day coming up I thought it would be a good idea to pass along the newest flyer from the Partnership for Food Safety Education.  Click on the image to download a printable PDF.

Memorial Day signals the start of a season where food is on the move – to picnics, cookouts, and barbecues in the backyard and beyond! And since food poisoning spikes in the summer, it’s the perfect time to remind consumers about what they can do to reduce their risk.

Escaping the kitchen doesn’t mean escaping bacteria! We’ve created a new Food Safety on the Move flyer for consumers to be reminded of what to do when taking a meal out to the great outdoors. Share this with someone you know who is planning an outdoor Memorial Day event!

Every year, one in six Americans gets sick from dangerous foodborne bacteria.  The estimated 128,000 who suffer serious illness requiring hospitalization each year are those most vulnerable to infections — young children, the elderly, and other people with compromised immune systems.
