    Tips for Keeping Your Food Safe! (Photo: Dorota Kaszczyszyn)Foodborne illness: a disease carried or transmitted to people by food.

    Foodborne-illness outbreak: an incident in which two or more people experience the same illness after eating the same food.

    The increase in foodborne illnesses and foodborne-illness outbreaks has caused many consumers to become more concerned about the quality of the food they are purchasing and eating. Consumers expect their food to be safe, as farms, food processors and manufacturers, and eating establishments are required to undergo rigorous inspections by health inspectors on a regular basis. Unfortunately, despite these health inspections, millions of people are still affected by foodborne illness every year.

    As a result, President Obama recently signed into law the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The goal of the FSMA is to ensure that the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing contamination, and in turn puts into place more comprehensive preventive controls for both human and animal food facilities.
