Today the U.S. Department of Agriculture will be going live at 3 p.m. EST to answer questions about food safety on Twitter.
Anyone is invited to attend these “virtual office hours,” hosted by Dr. Elizabeth Hagen, USDA’s Under Secretary for Food Safety in honor of National Food Safety Education Month.
USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service provided a list of topics consumers are urged to ask about in a press release Thursday. Some possible questions include:
– What is USDA doing to bring down rates of E. coli and Salmonella illnesses?
– If I discover a problem with my food, where can I report it?
– What should I do if I have a recalled product?
Those wishing to ask these or other food safety questions can participate by following @USDA on Twitter and using the #askUSDA hashtag.
