September is National Food Safety and Education Month

Each September, the Partnership for Food Safety Education uses National Food Safety and Education Month as an opportunity to teach people about food safety best practices. About 1 in 6 people in the United States get foodborne illnesses every year. Healthy People 2030 focuses on preventing foodborne illnesses by improving food safety practices. Many foodborne illnesses are caused by bacteria, like Campylobacter, E. coli, Listeria, and Salmonella. Each year in the United States, more than 100,000 people go to the hospital and 3,000 people die because of foodborne illnesses.  Please click "Details" below for the full article, and additional information and tips.

Foodborne illnesses are preventable. Interventions in food production, processing, and storage can help prevent food from getting contaminated with bacteria. Teaching people to follow food safety practices when they’re preparing food — like washing hands and surfaces often — can also help prevent foodborne illnesses.
