The goal of the National Food Safety Database project is to develop an efficient management system of US food safety databases that are used by the Cooperative Extension Service (CES), consumers, industry, and other public health organizations. The end result of such a management program is a highly informative, efficient and accurate website which will provide one-stop shopping for food safety information. This database contains only information from United States national sources. The database includes very few records in publications and training materials, but does have divisions of information for consumers, educators, industry professionals and updated news on food safety, and does contain interesting information for consumers.
