FDA Releases Food-Safety Project Videos

WASHINGTONAs part of a retail food-safety project, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released three video testimonials educating retail and foodservice employees on the possible consequences of poor preparation practices and ways to prevent foodborne illness.

The videos are part of the FDA's Oral Culture Learner Project, designed to enhance food-safety training efforts at the retail level by helping employees understand the role they play in protecting public health. They also support the FDA's Retail Food Safety Initiative seeking to strengthen the retail and foodservice industry's active managerial control of foodborne illness risk factors.

Each video is less than 10 minutes in length. Two of which feature the testimonials of family members who lost their mother and wife due to Salmonella-contaminated food from a restaurant. The third video covers the story of a women who contracted listeriosis while pregnant.

FDA encourages operators, food-safety educators and federal, state, local, tribal and territorial regulatory officials to engage in the free project materials.

In addition to these, the project has produced food-safety posters and story boards in nine different languages including English, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Vietnamese, Russian, Korean, Hindi and Arabic.
