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. 

To listen to the radio spot, click here: www.radiospace.com/crn552.htm

Consumers can also visit http://www.meatsafety.org/ to test their meat and poultry safety IQ by taking a quiz and answering 15 questions on topics such as safe handling of meat and poultry products, proper cooking temperatures and storage procedures. 

The radio announcement and quiz are two tools in AMI’s vast food safety education toolbox.  For additional information, visit:
