Earlier this week, a large recall on ground beef was issued. About half a million pounds of ground beef were recalled due to E. coli.

An E. coli infection is a serious illness. In fact, the tainted beef has been linked to two deaths. Many more have been hospitalized.

So, now is the ideal time to think about food safety. You’ll want to learn more about safe handling instructions for food. You should also brush up on food-borne illnesses.

The government’s FoodSafety site provides a wealth of information. You can find out what you should know about food poisoning. Learn the symptoms and causes. It’s at foodsafety.gov.

You’ll also find advice for avoiding food poisoning. For example, the guidelines on minimum cooking temperatures are a must read.

Of course, it is also a great place to go for recall information. You can find out about food products that have been recalled.

Also be sure to check out independent, authoritative sources of food ingredient information like Foodfacts.com for comprehensive, independent and objective information about the hidden ingredients within the foods you eat and for empowering content about nutrition.
