  • The nation's food safety system consists of activities carried out by several federal, state and local government agencies that inspect, test, research, and monitor the food supply. For the most part, these agencies monitor whether food manufacturers are adhering to their legal responsibility of assuring the production of safe food. However, reported occurrences of outbreaks of foodborne illnesses have been increasing, and current safety L efforts are not providing the confidence in the food supply that U.S. consumers demand. There are three interventions that need priority if the trend in foodborne illnesses are to be reversed, a) improve surveillance, b) mandate irradiation procedures and c) require all food handlers to demonstrate their knowledge in proper food handling
