@FDACommissioner

  • ·       General Mills is recalling some 5 pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached All Purpose Flour for the potential presence of E. coli. Consumers should return or discard affected products. https://go.usa.gov/xVEae
  • ·       The #FDA will provide more information as it becomes available. It’s an important reminder to never eat any raw dough or batter that is supposed to be cooked or baked. https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/raw-doughs-raw-deal-and-could-make-you-sick
  • ·       Last spring, we welcomed everyone to the “New Era of Smarter Food Safety,” which is people-led, FSMA-based & technology-enabled. We continue to move our plan forward & today announced a public meeting to help gain input on how to implement this initiative. https://go.usa.gov/xVEah
  • ·       Register to attend and help shape the New Era of Smarter Food Safety. We intend for a resulting strategic plan to outline how this new approach will address public health challenges, like tracing sources of contaminated foods and using new tools like artificial intelligence.

@FrankYiannasFDA

  • ·       Today, we announced FDA’s public meeting to help usher the U.S. into a New Era of Smarter Food Safety. We can’t do it alone. That’s why we’re looking for the best ideas from within & outside the boundaries of the agency. Plan to join us by signing up here. https://go.usa.gov/xVEah

  • ·       This AM, I spoke to @UnitedFresh about the importance of telling your story as a producer. We’ve got challenges ahead of us, but we’ve had many successes. It’s our job to convey that to Americans and to do right and feed everyone... fresh!
