We follow all USDA guidelines for food safety. This is especially true in regards to shelf stable foods and dates on cans and packages. If you are a school liaison or family who gets these foods weekly this free mobile app can help you feel safe and informed.
The FoodKeeper contains food safety and storage advice to help your shoppers maintain freshness and quality of foods. There are two ways to help shoppers utilize The FoodKeeper:
#1: The FoodKeeper Mobile App
Originally published as a brochure in 1994, the new FoodKeeper App provides valuable food storage advice to help consumers maintain the freshness and quality of foods. The guidelines recommended in The FoodKeeper can also help consumers use food while at peak quality and reduce waste. The guide was created through the work of the Food Marketing Institute, Cornell University’s Department of Food Science, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Recently, the FoodKeeper App was updated so users can choose to receive automatic notifications when food safety recalls are announced by USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Encourage your shoppers to download and utilize the FoodKeeper App for free. Download The Foodkeeper Free Media Kit for images, talking points and information to help you promote and share the app to your shoppers.
