FoodSafety.gov is a gateway website that provides links to selected government food safety-related information. Not every government web site is listed. When more than one government web site provides similar information, links will be provided to only one or two of those sites. A steering committee consisting of individuals with different backgrounds reviews all potential sites for inclusion on the FoodSafety.gov web site. This web site is part of the National Food Safety Information Network. It is maintained by FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.
The logo, "From Farm to Table," indicates that food safety is a shared responsibility of government, industry, and the consumer. This shared responsibility is especially well-expressed by the California Department of Food & Agriculture web site:
"When we discuss food safety issues, we must consider the important role each link of the food chain plays in ensuring a safe food supply. The entire chain includes growers, packers, shippers, food handlers, processors, retailers and consumers. If a link in that chain is broken, it threatens the safety and integrity of our food supply. That's why we must work together to improve how we communicate public health messages to the entire food chain..."
Although we have made reasonable efforts to assure that we link to sites that provide accurate and up to date information, the FoodSafety.gov web site does not control the content of the internet sites listed. It does not review or endorse any of the information in those sites.
FoodSafety.gov is a referral service only and is not intended to be used to diagnosis medical conditions, offer medical advice, or endorse specific products or services.
This is a US GOVERNMENT Computer. Under TITLE 18 of the US CODE it is Illegal to use this resource for any other purpose, than its intended use as a WEB SERVER for the dissemination of Public Information.
