Food Contamination: Part Two

Posted by | March 29, 2011

Since September 11th, we have become even more aware of the need to keep our food safe and secure from intentional product contamination. We play a very important role in protecting ourselves, our families, and our food supply. While almost any food or beverage can be intentionally contaminated, you decrease the risk of consuming unsafe products by following a few simple guidelines when you purchase food for your family:

Be vigilant when shopping. Carefully examine all food product packaging. It’s always a good idea to compare the outer seal or wrapper of what you intend to purchase with other containers on the market shelf. Never purchase a food item with a missing outer seal or wrapper. If you see products with missing seals or wrappers while you’re shopping, let the supermarket manager know.
