The WHY of Food Safety

Stop Foodborne Illness and the LGMA on Food Safety Culture

Empowered to Make Real Change

In 2006, an outbreak of foodborne E. coli O157:H7 spread through spinach. Following the outbreak, the California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement (LGMA) was established to improve food safety practices and prevent future contamination.

In 2013, farmers and representatives from the LGMA  and two STOP constituents who are survivors of this outbreak, met together. This is their story.

Continually Advancing

In 2021, Lauren, Rylee and Dan met again on behalf of the California LGMA and Stop Foodborne Illness. The first time they met, their individual stories had a great impact on one another. Now both organizations have partnered again to continue the story of why food safety matters.

In this follow-up video, they share how the original video has impacted their lives and their food safety messages. And they’re also looking to the future to encourage dialogue and trust among everyone who participates in the world of food. As Dan Sutton (LGMA) says, “By working together we create content, context and understanding providing far more than just a policy that is written down on paper – we provide the true meaning of why that policy exists.”

STOP and LGMA invite everyone – from consumers to farmers, and everyone in between – to work together for a stronger food safety culture.
