Yesterday Food Safety News was one of many victims of a failure at Amazon Web Services, or “the cloud.”  

What that means for you, our readers, is that our promise to provide timely news coverage of all food safety issues was broken.  

What are we doing to rectify the situation?

Food Safety News
is improving our ability to respond to a server failure and keep the news coming to your inbox, browser, or smartphone.  We’ve established a backup plan, and are in the process of providing a backup to the backup.  In the meantime, we’ve been assured that our service will continue as before.

As always, we value your feedback.  If you have suggestions for how we can improve Food Safety News, we’re all ears.  And remember that we’re open to suggestions for topics you’d like to see us cover.  

Again, to all of our readers, some of whom we recently met at the Food Safety Summit in Washington, D.C., our apologies.
