Safe Recipe Style Guide

The Partnership for Food Safety Education (PFSE) developed a Safe Recipe Style Guide that provides recipe text to address the four major areas of most food safety violations in home kitchens: temperature, handwashing, cross contamination and produce handling. The exact wording was crafted under the guidance of food safety experts and honed with the direction of leading food journalists. It is intended as a supplement to the AP Stylebook, the definitive resource for journalists that provides fundamental guidelines for spelling, language, punctuation, usage and journalistic style.

The funder of this style guide is the Food Marketing Institute Foundation, which is operated for charitable, educational and scientific purposes. The FMI Foundation sees this style guide as a logical extension of its National Family Meals Month initiative.
