Retail Food Risk Factor Study

FDA’s National Retail Food Team designed the following resources to help state, local, territorial, and tribal jurisdictions complete a risk factor study as part of Standard 9 - Program Assessment of the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards.

Completion of a risk factor study and implementation of a focused public health intervention can decrease the occurrence of foodborne illness risk factors and protect food served at retail. 

Additionally, Retail Food Specialists have other resources they can customize to assist jurisdictions with study design, training, and data analysis, including workshops and our risk factor study database.
