In conjunction with September’s National Food Safety Education Month, the American Meat Institute has announced number of resources available to help bridge the knowledge gap among consumers when it comes to properly handling, cooking and storing meat and poultry products.
AMI released a :60 radio piece delivered to radio networks and stations nationwide in most of the top 100 markets. The segment highlights the meat industry’s food safety progress, while reminding consumers they are partners and the final hurdle in food safety in the kitchen.
