US agencies host joint meetings on food safety

FSIS, FDA and CDC ask public for feedback

Three U.S. federal agencies – the FSIS, the FDA and the CDC – will hold two joint public meetings this year to consider measuring progress on food safety. These meetings will be held July 21 in Chicago, Ill., and Oct. 20 in Portland, Ore., and will extend the scope of the public workshop held March 30 in Washington D.C.

Interested stakeholders, including members of consumer groups, industry, public health experts and regulators, are invited to comment on measure they recommend or are using to access performance in food safety.

Of special interest to the egg industry is a request to evaluate the FDA Final Rule on salmonella. For further information, visit the FSIS website.
