New guides make food safety easy


A new food safety series is intended to help at-risk populations reduce risks from foodborne illness.

According to Karen Blakeslee, a K-State Research and Extension food scientist, the new publications include:

--Food Safety for Pregnant Women;

--Food Safety for Older Adults;

--Food Safety for People with Diabetes;

--Food Safety for People with Cancer;

--Food Safety for People with HIV/AIDS, and

--Food Safety for Transplant Recipients.

Each of the six 24-page publications includes food safety basics, easy-to-read charts, checklists identifying do's and don'ts, and lists of symptoms to help identify foodborne illness and know when to seek treatment, Blakeslee said.

The food safety push reflects the cooperative effort of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service and the Department of Health and Human Services Food and Drug Administration.

The publications are free and can be downloaded at www.fsis.usda.gov/fact_sheets/at_risk_&_underserved_fact_sheets/index.asp.

To order the booklets for your home, office, or organization, call the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline (888-674-6854) weekdays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. (Eastern), or email requests to fsis.outreach.usda.gov.

More information on food and food safety also is available at K-State Research and Extension offices throughout the state and online at www.rrc.ksu.edu.
