New site features latest government food safety and recall information
By James Limbach, ConsumerAffairs.comThe government has a new food safety Web site for consumers up and running.
Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack say the site, www.foodsafety.gov, is designed to help families get all the latest information on food safety and recalls in one convenient place.
The new site will feature information from all the agencies across the federal government that deal with critical food and food safety information, including preventive tips about how to handle food safely, alerts on life-saving food recalls, and the latest news from the key agencies.
Consumers can sign up in one easy place to receive email and RSS alerts on recalled or potentially unsafe food and hear from the top scientific experts across the government on food safety. Later phases of the site to be launched will include recall feeds for texting and mobile phones.
