What safeguards are in place to protect Americans from unsafe food? Are these methods science-based?
Some of the safeguards in place to protect Americans from food-based illnesses include:
- Research and development
- Criminal prosecution
- Addressing intentional and unintentional contamination
The methods are science-based because the methods are determined by the FDA and the CDC. The CDC is involved in preventing foodborne diseases and investigating outbreaks to develop preventive measures.
