  • ·         While most hepatitis A infections are caused by close contact with an infected person, some are caused by consuming contaminated food or water. Learn how safe food handling and prep can help fight against this contagious virus. #WorldHepatitisDay http://go.usa.gov/xf9yB

 

@FDAfood

  • ·         Not sure what nutrients to look for when reading the new #NutritionFactsLabel? Here's a tip: More often, choose foods that are higher in dietary fiber, vitamin D, calcium, iron, and potassium, and lower in saturated fat, sodium, and added sugars https://go.usa.gov/xw8Pb
  • ·         Don’t just rely on the date label that appears on a package to know if a food is still ok to eat. Look at and smell the food for signs of spoilage. For info on date labels and maximizing the shelf life of your food, check out https://go.usa.gov/xw8PR

  • ·         My mission from the beginning of my time as Secretary was to make @USDA  the most effective, most efficient, most customer-focused department in the entire federal government – these changes to http://Farmers.gov  are doing just that.
