Food safety should be an important issue for everyone. Our food supply is the safest in the world, yet there are times when individuals or groups may have stomach cramps, diarrhea, headaches, fever or vomiting after a meal. These symptoms can be caused by a flu virus or a possible case of food-borne illness.
Our food supply is not 100 percent safe and never will be. However, consumers play a major role in minimizing the risk of food-borne illness.
