Food for Thought: Is Your Food Safe?

September is National Food Safety Education Month, a good time for each of us to think about a subject we may take for granted--how we buy, prepare, and store food for ourselves and our families.

The websites of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are good sources of current health information you can use to stay safe. Find out what the CDC has to say about food safety here; and learn about several aspects of food safety from the FDA here.
