Updated NACCHO Policy Statements: Food System Safety and Foodborne Disease Outbreak Response

NACCHO recently released two updated policy statements under its Food Safety and Defense program. The first statement is on Food System Safety, which provides guidance to ensure local health department participation in all areas of food safety as a means to reduce foodborne illness in the communities they serve. The Foodborne Disease Outbreak Response Policy Statement was also updated, which encourages support for local health department foodborne disease surveillance, investigation and control.
