National Food Safety Month Spotlights Foodborne Illness Detection, Protection

We’re midway through National Food Safety Month, and the NRA’s campaign continues focusing on protecting against some of the leading causes of foodborne illness—Norovirus and Hepatitis A.

“Food safety and security is the top priority for America’s one million restaurants,” said Sherman Brown, senior v.p. of the NRA’s ServSafe food safety and handling program.

Under the Notorious Virus theme, the NRA is highlighting the sources of these viruses and providing tips and tools on how to detect and prevent the spread of foodborne illness through proper hand washing and cleaning procedures. New training tools and free resources, including activities, posters, infographics, and videos, are made available each week on the NRA website.

NFSM, held annually in September, was created in 1994 by the Association to heighten awareness about the importance of food safety education.
