(American Meat Institute)
The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) yesterday launched a set of RSS feeds for news and recall releases. Additionally, FSIS is making available a new capability to bookmark and share food safety content on personal and publicly shared Web pages.
RSS feeds are an effective method of summarizing the latest news and information from a Web site that can be easily read by many news readers. RSS feeds for news content complement those already available for the FSIS podcasting series "Food Safety at Home and Food Safety for Meat, Poultry and Processed Egg Product Inspection Podcasts." RSS feeds are available at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_Events/Feeds/index.asp.
FSIS also is launching a Twitter presence to reach out to an audience that the Agency might not be reaching through traditional means of communication, such as news releases and other publications. FSIS can be followed at www.twitter.com/USDAFoodSafety.share on facebook share on twitter
