The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced this week that it is to support 13 new programs that address the risks of foodborne disease in settings as varied as elementary schools, shellfish inspections to river boating and hiking the countryside. The programs, sponsored by state and local regulatory agencies, were awarded FDA grants totalling $500,000 during September's Food Safety Education Month. The FDA grants are part of the Federal Food Safety program designed to complement, develop, or improve state and local food safety programs. The awards, which may be transferred to other state and local jurisdictions, are for a one-year period and focus on two key areas: inspection techniques and education/health information dissemination.
