An Emphasis on Food Safety
A new website launched by specialists at the Texas AgrilLife Extension Services is focusing on food safety, promoting the message: "Safe from our farms to your table."
"Using good practices to produce food from planting to harvest—and in handling and processing—is more and more important," says Juan Anciso, Texas AgrilLife Extension Service horticulturist, who along with colleague Joe Masabni launched the site as a "one-stop shop" where farmers or anyone interested in learning about food safety in production and supply can find answers.
The site includes links to educational resources and information on facility sanitation, food allergens, foodborne pathogens, harvester resources, hygiene procedures, kitchen issues, meat and poultry safety, microbiology concerns and produce safety.
