bbq-kabobsThe Food and Drug Administration’s 50 State Food Safety Twitter Tour is underway and Arizona will be featured on August 4th. This tour aims to encourage engagement through social media by promoting the best content the 50 state agricultural and/or health agencies have on food safety. The Food Safety Tour kick-off was on April 7th, World Health Day, and will end on August 5th.

The FDA is highlighting a new state every Tuesday-Thursday. The goal of the Food Safety Tour is to reach out and inform a wide audience about food safety and to foster a collaborative approach to food safety and foodborne illness prevention. Check out the 50 State Food Safety Tour by following @FDAFood or using #50StateFS on Twitter.
