FDA-TRACK: Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition - Education and Outreach

FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) administers the Foods Program. CFSAN ensures the safety of the human food supply, dietary supplements, and cosmetics as well as the proper labeling of foods and cosmetics. The Foods Program is responsible for a safe food supply and ensuring FDA regulations and guidance provide clear and reliable direction and assistance to industry, both inside and outside the United States, with a goal to obtain high rates of compliance with standards necessary to protect public health and meet consumer and stakeholder expectations.

Dramatic improvements in reducing the burden of foodborne illness cannot be made without doing more to influence the beliefs, attitudes, and, most importantly, the behaviors of people and the actions of organizations. FDA protects and promotes public health through outreach and education by increasing public awareness about FDA’s food programs and policies and providing advice on preventing foodborne illness and making healthful food choices.

Explore the progress CFSAN is making towards its Education and Outreach efforts below:

Consumer Outreach 

FDA protects public health more effectively by informing and engaging with consumers and other stakeholders. FDA is maximizing this engagement by increasing our use of social media, responding promptly to press and constituent inquiries, and translating safety and regulatory resources into other languages. These outreach efforts enable consumers to make better informed decisions in purchasing and using cosmetics, while also assisting the increasingly global industry in achieving compliance with U.S. safety and labeling requirements.
