FDA and STOP announce the fifth webinar in series on food safety culture

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Stop Foodborne Illness, a non-profit public health organization, have announced a fifth webinar in their collaborative series that explores food safety culture. The fifth webinar, called “Rewards and Recognition Programs,” will take place from noon to 1 p.m. EDT on Oct. 26.

The webinar series is entitled “Collaborating on Culture in the New Era of Smarter Food Safety.” It engages experts from the public and private sectors in a collaborative exchange of ideas and experiences related to the importance of a robust food safety culture in helping to ensure safe food production.

Food safety culture is one of the core elements in FDA’s New Era of Smarter Food Safety blueprint, which states that dramatic improvements in reducing the burden of foodborne illness cannot be made without doing more to influence the beliefs, attitudes, and, most importantly, the behaviors of people and the actions of organizations.
