Stop Foodborne Illness was born out of individuals demanding that there be food safety policy reform to protect consumers.
As such, we continue in our founders’ tradition of advocating for safer food, increased transparency and better communication to consumers.
Our story includes:
Today, we have returned to our roots as we collaborate with other public health organizations to advocate for the modernization of the outdated and unenforceable FSIS performance guidelines pertaining to Salmonella and Campylobacter in poultry.
As the voice of people affected by foodborne illness, we collaborate with partners in academia, the food industry, and government to prevent foodborne illness. We advocate for effective food safety policy and facilitate culture change to increase food safety.
