Quote of the Day

 “Stop [Foodborne Illness] created the culture of food safety that absolutely has been the driver of everything that’s happened since. It had an immediate effect on the meat industry but… I’m convinced that Stop has cultivated a culture of food safety throughout the food industry. It’s absolutely clear that [Stop is the] catalyst, and that change of mindset has had a transformative effect on the food system in this country." - Mike Taylor, Former Deputy Commissioner of Foods, FDA, January, 2015
