  • ·       ALERT: FDA informing consumers to a hepatitis A virus (HAV) contamination of frozen blackberries under the Kroger grocery store “Private Selection” brand. Consumers advised not to eat & throw away select, recalled products identified at this link
  • ·       Earlier today, I was at the UN representing @US_FDA in the inaugural World Food Safety Day. In a global food system, when it comes to food safety, we all win or lose together. Read my entire speech here https://bit.ly/2I1b2Cq  & let’s make EVERY day a World Food Safety Day!
  • ·       There’s a role for everyone in this important work. Check out #FDA’s new #WorldFoodSafetyDay page for valuable information about how to participate in spreading the word about food safety & avoid foodborne illnesses https://go.usa.gov/xmtkJ
  • ·       I would like to acknowledge & thank the @FAO and @WHO for all that they do to advance food safety worldwide. As we look towards the future, there’s no question that we must all continue to work on creating a stronger, global culture of food safety, together.
  • ·       Today, I’m @UN to discuss how food safety is everyone’s business. It’s an issue that transcends international borders. We must foster, support and strengthen food safety cultures on our farms, in our facilities, and in our nations. #FDA #WorldFoodSafetyDay
  • ·       Our work towards these goals are set in the framework of three missions set forth by Congress and @US_FDA to prevent foodborne illnesses, create a modern food safety system, and empower consumers to make informed choices about their diet.
  • ·       First, there is the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act that #FDA has been implementing since it was signed into law in 2011. Under FSMA, science & risk-based standards have been put in place for the production, packing, holding and transportation of foods
  • ·       Second, @FDACommissioner Sharpless & I recently announced a New Era of Smarter Food Safety to leverage new & emerging technologies to further food safety goals. It creates shared value for all - farmers, food producers, regulators, consumers, the planet https://go.usa.gov/xmtYW
  • ·       Third, there’s #FDA’s Nutrition Innovation Strategy announced in 2018 to empower consumers with information & facilitate industry innovation to create healthier products, help combat the growing burden of chronic disease

@US_FDA

  • ·       #SafetyAlert: STOP using bobbie Milk-Based Powder Companion Formula from & sold by Bobbie Baby Inc., mfg in Germany, imported & sold online. FDA has found products non-compliant w/ infant #formula regs & inadequate nutrient levels for some #infants https://go.usa.gov/xmteu
