Food Safety

The NMDA Office of Agricultural Bio-Security and the Southwest Border Food Safety and Defense Center have a new New Mexico Food Protection Alliance website. The site contains announcements of alliance meetings, training opportunities and food recall information.

The latest federal food safety and recall information is available at www.FoodSafety.gov

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is the United States Department of Agriculture agency responsible for food safety in meat, poultry, and egg products including inspection and labeling.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) monitors public health and public health threats across the United States.  CDC’s primary mission is health promotion, prevention of disease, injury and disability, and preparedness for new health threats.  CDC’s website provides a wealth of information concerning public health threats domestically and internationally as well as information to prevent the spread of disease.

Another great source of information for human health outbreaks locally and globally is HealthMap.  HealthMap provides global information on recalls but also has released iPhone, iPad, and Android apps, “HealthMap:Outbreaks Near Me” that provides infectious disease information worldwide in a map based format.

Additional information of benefit to New Mexican’s concerning food protection, agricultural biosecurity, and emergency preparedness can be found on the Southwest Border Food Safety and Defense Center’s web page.  Here you can find information and links concerning agricultural biosecurity, training opportunities, family emergency preparedness, and a wealth of other information concerning food safety and biosecurity measures.
