Safest Choice Supports STOP Foodborne Illness
Safest Choice Eggs is proud to support STOP Foodborne Illness, a national, nonprofit, public health organization dedicated to preventing illness and death from foodborne pathogens. STOP Foodborne Illness is “America’s voice for safe food” and advocates for sound public policy, builds public awareness and assists those impacted by foodborne illness.
STOP was originally formed as Safe Tables Our Priority in 1993 after a deadly E. coli Outbreak, and was incorporated as a not-for-profit in California in 1994. STOP began as a grassroots effort as a touchstone for families in pain, and a resource for media outlets looking to provide answers. Over the years STOP has significantly improved public health by raising awareness about foodborne pathogens, advocating for stricter regulations and assisting those personally impacted by foodborne illness.
Safest Choice has supported STOP for a number of years and this November and December Safest Choice Eggs has specifically helped support STOP’s email alerts that help make people aware of current food recalls and outbreaks so they can make safer food choices. Sign up for these invaluable email alerts here. You can also find STOP on Facebook and Twitter, and they just launched a new Facebook page, STOP Antibiotic Resistance.
