Food safety and security

Food safety is concerned with safe sources of all foods, freedom from avoidable chemical and microbial contamination continuing the appropriate 'cold-chain' where needed, protection from insects, rodents, cross-contamination, safe storage, transportation, labeling, preparation, processing, cooking, correct temperatures post-heating, food-handler safety, and service. It also encompasses risk-reduction protocols (HACCP), training and certification of handlers, testing of food, inspection and enforcement of all stages from producer to consumer. Food safety and food security are interrelated concepts with a profound impact on quality of human life and there are many external factors that affect both of these areas. Food safety is an umbrella term that encompasses many facets of handling, preparation and storage of food to prevent illness and injury. Included under the umbrella are chemical, microphysical and microbiological aspects of food safety.
