Tracing to the source
Traceability is important so that if someone gets sick from a foodborne illness, the source of illness can be traced back to the restaurant, wholesaler, food processor or farm. Once the source of illness is identified, steps can be taken to make sure no one else gets sick.
Every dairy, beef, bison and sheep animal must wear an ear tag that can be traced back to the farm where it was born.
Food safety is everyone’s responsibility
Farmers, processors, retailers, and restaurants are all responsible for providing safe food for consumers. Remember that it is also your responsibility to follow safe food handling rules at home!
Clean, separate, cook and chill!
