Has the recent Hepatitis A alert at the Monroe Tim Horton’s left you afraid to eat out? Wondering how to find out more about that and other food-related illnesses?

The Food Safety News website is a reliable source for daily information about food recalls, food-borne illness outbreaks, food science, technology, food policy and more.

Founded in 2009 by food safety attorney, Bill Marler, this team of reporters continues to consolidate current food safety news, including the recent Hepatitis A situation in Monroe, all together in one spot. Users can navigate using the tabs along the top to current information about Foodborne Illness Outbreaks; Food Recalls; Food Politics; and Events. The opportunity to subscribe exists on each page.

The Federal Government also provides advice for food recalls/alerts on their Food Safety Website including information about keeping food safe, food poisoning, and more. An app even allows users to search for a food to find out how long it will last in the pantry or refrigerator. Answers to those shelf-life questions can also be answered on StillTasty: Your Ultimate Shelf Life Guide where foods can be browsed by category.
