Is My Food Safe?

In Light of Food Poisoning Outbreaks, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Highlights Free Resources to Help Reduce Food Poisoning Risk

CHICAGO, Aug. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Food poisoning causes 48 million illnesses in the U.S. each year. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics encourages everyone to reduce their risk with simple safety steps from www.HomeFoodSafety.org and by downloading the free Is My Food Safe? mobile app at http://www.homefoodsafety.org/app.

The Academy's award-winning HomeFoodSafety.org website and Is My Food Safe? mobile app are free resources provided by the Home Food Safety program -- a collaboration between the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and ConAgra Foods. Since the launch of the app in August 2012, it has already been downloaded 20,000 times on Apple and Android devices.

The Is My Food Safe? app consists of the following sections:
  • IS IT DONE YET? Check the safe minimum internal cooking temperature for meats and more.
  • TIME TO TOSS? Learn essential information on how long you can keep leftovers.
  • QUIZ: IS MY KITCHEN SAFE? Test your knowledge of kitchen safety and see what grade your kitchen receives.
  • ASK AN EXPERT Find out more about food safety from registered dietitian nutritionists -- the food and nutrition experts.

"You can't rely upon color, taste or smell alone to determine if a food is safe to eat," said registered dietitian nutritionist and Academy Spokesperson Libby Mills. "The Is My Food Safe? app is a great tool for identifying expired foods and safely cooking pretty much any type of meat: hamburgers, pork, chicken, game meat and even exotic meats and poultry."

"Don't let your health and the health of your guests be determined by guesswork in food preparation and storage," Mills said. "This app should be your number-one companion in the kitchen, offering simple home food safety steps that can reduce your risk."
