DATCP Promotes Consumer Awareness for World Food Safety Day

Release Date: June 5, 2020

Media Contact: Kevin Hoffman, Public Information Officer, (608) 224-5005

MADISON—In recognition of World Food Safety Day on Sunday, June 7, the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) is reminding consumers to be proactive and practice safe food handling to prevent foodborne illnesses.

World Food Safety Day was created to draw attention and inspire action to prevent, detect and manage foodborne hazards, contributing to food security, human health, economic prosperity, agriculture, tourism and sustainable development. Each year, an estimated 600 million people—nearly one in 10 worldwide—become ill after eating contaminated food, resulting in 420,000 deaths.

While there is no evidence that COVID-19 is transmitted through food or food packaging, there are numerous other reasons to remember the importance of safe food-handling. Unsafe food can contain harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites or chemical substances, causing more than 200 diseases with symptoms ranging from diarrhea to neurological disorders.

“Recently, the American food supply has received a lot of attention,” said Steve Ingham, administrator for the DATCP Division of Food and Recreational Safety. “On World Food Safety Day, we should first be thankful for the abundant and safe food supply that we continue to enjoy. As businesses begin reopening, we should also be grateful for the many state, local and federal food safety professionals who work with business operators to ensure that our food supply is safe. Food safety is a team effort and every consumer can do their part, too.”

To protect consumer health and ensure food safety, DATCP encourages everyone to follow some key points from the World Health Organization’s (WHO) five keys to safer food:

Keep clean: Wash hands before, during and after handling food. Clean and sanitize all surfaces and equipment used for food preparation.
Separate raw and cooked food: Store food in containers to avoid contact between raw and cooked foods. Use separate equipment for raw meat, poultry and seafood.
Cook thoroughly: Bring foods like soups and stews to boiling temperature. For meat and poultry, use a thermometer to ensure proper internal temperatures.
Keep food at safe temperatures: Do not leave cooked food at room temperature for more than two hours, and do not thaw frozen food at room temperature.
Use safe water and raw materials: Wash all fruits and vegetables, especially if eaten raw. Do not consume food that has not been stored at proper temperatures.

City Talk - Shawano

The City of Shawano would like to thank our entire community and visitors for the peaceful rally that took place on Wednesday, June 3rd throughout downtown Shawano. We are immensely proud of our entire community and your response towards this demonstration.

To the organizers – thank you. Thank you for your leadership and constant and powerful voice to those in attendance about what your true purpose was and for working hard to keep things peaceful.

To the attendees – thank you. Thank you for choosing to rise above the violence and hate that we have seen in other communities and using your first amendment rights to provide an educational moment for everyone.

To the business owners and community members – thank you. Thank you for your support of those that marched past your businesses and homes. Some of you cheered, some of you offered refreshments – all of you afforded a safe space for the attendees to be heard.

To our Police Officers – thank you. Thank you for being there. Your ability to walk alongside the participants and spark conversations of peace and fairness - not fear and hatred - speaks volumes about the character of the entire department. Thank you for providing assurance to those that chose to march that they would be heard and could do so safely.

The City of Shawano is committed to ensuring that all individuals have the ability to exercise their rights to be heard, to educate, and to speak out against acts of injustice – so long as it is done so peacefully and responsibly - as was demonstrated by so many in our community on Wednesday.

Thank you.

It's never too early to start dreaming of those warm, sunny days at the farmers market! Remember that you don't have to own a farm to sell at the farmers market. You can sell vegetables from your garden at home. If you want to be a vendor but aren't available for the whole summer, that's okay, just let us know what days you can sell.
