July 17, 2020: FDA Releases Updated Guide to Retail Food Protection

FDA’s Cooperative Program

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues to promote science-based food safety principles in the retail and foodservice industries in order to reduce the incidence rate of foodborne illnesses.

Per the FDA’s “Cooperative Program” site,

“More than 3,000 state, local and tribal agencies have primary responsibility to regulate the retail food and foodservice industries in the United States. They are responsible for the inspection and oversight of over 1 million food establishments – restaurants and grocery stores, as well as vending machines, cafeterias, and other outlets in health-care facilities, schools, and correctional facilities.”

The FDA these agencies as they regulate by providing a model Food Code, scientifically-based guidance, training, program evaluation, and technical assistance. Resources related to food safety, food during the COVID-19 Pandemic, and other useful information can be found on the FDA’s helpful food safety page.
