FDA’s Retail Modernization: Foodborne Illness Prevention at the Federal, Industry, State, and Local Levels

February 21, 2023, 2:00-3:00 pm EST

During this webinar, you will hear about norovirus prevention measures and tools for retail food service operations from FDA, industry, and state and local regulators. According to CDC data, norovirus is the leading cause of foodborne illness in the U.S., responsible for 58 percent of foodborne illnesses. Each year, foodborne norovirus illness in the U.S. costs about $2 billion, mainly due to lost productivity and healthcare expenses.

From this webinar, you will learn:

  • Norovirus intervention strategies for retail food service operations at the federal, industry, state, and local levels
  • The connections between norovirus prevention, the work of the Retail Food Safety Regulatory Association Collaborative, and food safety culture
  • Technology innovations that go beyond the Food Code to keep people safer
  • Future goals for partnerships among FDA, CDC, and the Retail Food Safety Regulatory Association Collaborative

This webinar focuses on an aspect of Core Element 3 of the New Era blueprint, Retail Food Safety Modernization, and its associated foodborne illness prevention strategies. It is the third webinar in Food Safety Magazine’s webinar series, Evolution of New Era: Advancing Strategies for Smarter Food Safety, which features leading voices from the FDA and industry, and is the most in-depth series looking into FDA’s New Era of Smarter Food Safety both inside and outside FDA.
