September – National Food Safety Month?

September was National Food Safety Month.  Aren’t you glad it is over?

Remember, despite the downward trends in food poisonings,  76 million people experience a food-borne disease in the United States each year. In fact, according to the Partnership for Food Safety Education and the United States Department of Agriculture and the Centers for Disease Control, 325,000 people are hospitalized annually because of food poisoning, and 5,000 die each year from it.

All of us have more to do.
