Food Safety: Introduction

According to the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC), one in six Americans become sick with a foodborne illness each year. On an even larger scale, each year foodborne illnesses are responsible for about 2.2 million deaths in the world. Foodborne illness outbreaks cost companies millions of dollars each year due to lawsuits, loss of reputation and customers, and negative media exposure.

Food safety is made up of important steps taken to prevent foodborne illness. Food Safety: Introduction discusses some of these processes including the role of the regulatory and advisory agencies for food in North America and risks to food safety in a food processing facility.
