Feds to Hold Food Safety Strategy Meeting Jan. 31

WASHINGTONUSDAs Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will hold a public meeting on Jan. 31, 2012, to discuss federal efforts to enhance food-safety strategies through the improved use and characterization of foodborne illness source attribution.

The focus of the meeting will be to discuss federal approaches to food source attribution and outline efforts to develop harmonized food source attribution fractions to inform food-safety strategies. The meeting also will be used to review a draft Strategic Plan developed by the Interagency Food Safety Analytics Collaboration (IFSAC), which was formed this year to increase collaboration on analytic projects.
