The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service launched a set of RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, feeds for news and recall releases, according to a press release from the USDA. Additionally, FSIS is making available a new capability to bookmark and share food safety content on personal and publicly shared Web pages.

"We are excited to provide food safety information and resources in another timely and convenient manner," said FSIS administrator Al Almanza. "For issues of food safety and public health, delivering useful information to as many consumers as possible is a top priority."

RSS feeds for news content complements those already available for the FSIS podcasting series Food Safety for Meat, Poultry and Processed Egg Product Inspection.
