Stay Informed, Stay Safe: Food Recalls for a Happy Holiday Season
As the holiday season approaches, staying mindful of food safety is critical. While festive feasts bring joy, they also introduce a heightened risk of foodborne illnesses.
According to the CDC, an estimated 48 million people in the U.S. alone get sick from foodborne diseases each year, with over 150,000 hospitalized. This translates to one in six Americans experiencing foodborne illness annually.
While the holiday season doesn’t inherently increase this risk, the abundance of special dishes, increased travel, and potential for cross-contamination necessitate extra vigilance. Therefore, staying informed about food recalls, especially for ingredients like eggs, dairy, and shellfish commonly featured in holiday meals, can be your first line of defense for a safe and happy holiday season.
