With the power outages and flooding resulting from hurricane Sandy, consumers, retail and food service operators, food processers, and farmers all may need to take steps to ensure that their food is safe to eat. To assist both consumers and industry, FDA has consolidated its advice on keeping food and water safe in the event of floods, hurricanes, and power outages. 

FDA encourages everyone to visit its website and to take the necessary steps to ensure their food and water is safe to consume.
