FDA Releases Two Videos on Identifying
And Preventing Foodborne Illness
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently released two continuing medical education videos for physicians about foodborne illness. One video focuses on dealing with symptoms that may indicate foodborne illness: suspect, identify, treat, and report. The other video, for consumers, food safety educators, and doctors, shares advice on educating people at greater risk of serious illness from foodborne illness on how to protect themselves. FDA worked with the American Medical Association to create the videos, which are available on the FDA’s Food Safety and Nutrition Resources for Healthcare Professionals webpage.
