FDA Releases Educational Food Safety Posters for Retail Food Employees Focusing on the Importance of Date Marking and Adequate Cooking Temperatures

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) National Retail Food Team today released additional posters that will highlight retail date marking for ready-to-eat, time/temperature control for safety food and adequate cooking temperatures for turkey and ground beef. These posters are two-sided, with English on one side and a variety of other languages, including Spanish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Hindi, and Vietnamese on the other side. . These posters are currently available free of charge on the FDA Educational Materials for Retail Food Employees website and can be downloaded and printed.

This message is a follow up to an announcement made earlier this year of the availability of the English language version of the posters.

These posters were created as part of the FDA’s efforts to enhance food safety training at the retail level by helping employees better understand their role in preventing foodborne illnesses, particularly among vulnerable populations.
