US Food Safety Makes Progress

A progress report from the president’s Food Safety Working Group shows improvements nationwide.

A new report from President Obama’s Food Safety Working Group, formed in 2009 after a deadly salmonella outbreak contaminated more than 30 million pounds of peanut products across the US, reveals the government is making progress in securing the nation’s food safety. The progress report details a number of FSWG’s initiatives and accomplishments, including implementation of an egg-safety rule, new testing requirements for poultry, and ban of six additional strains of E. coli bacteria from the nation’s food system. Consumer education, more food-safety rules, and collaboration between the government and the food industry are some of FSWG’s goals for the upcoming year. One in every six Americans is affected by foodborne illness each year.
