CFSAN Reorganizes Foods Sections of FDA Website to Improve Usability

CFSAN Constituent Update

March 19, 2013

The FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) has reorganized the content of its portion of the FDA website to make it easier for consumers and other stakeholders to navigate the site and to find the information they are looking for about foods.

Visitors to the website will see changes in the main navigation bar on the homepage, with new section titles that group food-related web content into logical categories intended to help users locate needed information more quickly.  

For example, guidance documents and regulatory information are now consolidated by topic in the Guidance Documents & Regulatory Information section, as indicated on the navigation bar of the Food homepage.

Information about food allergens, previously spread out across several sections, now is consolidated in the new “Allergens” section, under “Ingredients, Packaging and Labeling.”

Information about specific food products and safe food handling is now collected in the Buy, Store & Serve Safe Food section under Foodborne Illness & Contaminants.

The Popular Topics section now collects the most frequently searched-for information from across the Food section.

CFSAN is interested in what consumers and other users have to say about the site’s new organization. Questions or recommendations about the site can be submitted by email to or Questions and Answers on the site’s new organization are available for users at this link:
