FDA's Retail Food Safety Initiative

 

 

Educational Videos for Retail Food Employees

In an effort to enhance retail food safety, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released three video testimonials to educate retail and foodservice employees on the possible, dire consequences of poor preparation practices and provide tips to prevent foodborne illness. The videos support the FDA’s Retail Food Safety Initiative2, which seeks to strengthen the retail and foodservice industry’s active managerial control of foodborne illness risk factors. The YouTube version of the videos can be found on the FDA Oral Culture Learner Project Educational Videos for Retail Food Employees webpage.

 

The downloadable version of the videos is now available at www.FoodShield.org disclaimer icon
