California USDA Food Safety Alert on Twitter

Last modified: 4/9/2012 4:28 PM
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) launched a series of Twitter feeds that will provide state-specific, food safety alerts to consumers. Followers of these Twitter accounts will receive alerts about recalls of meat, poultry and processed egg products in their state, as well as information on how to protect their food supply during severe weather events.
“These new Twitter feeds provide yet another mechanism for us to provide consumers with critical updates and relevant information they need to protect their families from foodborne illness," USDA Under Secretary for Food Safety Dr. Elisabeth Hagen said. "The immediacy of information-sharing through social media is unparalleled, and we believe these timely, targeted updates will better protect public health."
