USDA to announce food recalls via Twitter

Media_httpfarm8static_bdyyi

Good news for everyone concerned about whether they picked up some toxic eggs or bad beef the other day at the grocery store, but never watches the evening news; the USDA is now on Twitter!

Food alerts (regarding: meat, poultry, and [processed] egg products) that are specified to the state will be tweeted with the tw0-letter abbreviation designated to that state, along with a FSISAlert. So if a product has been recalled in California, it will have the name followed by “CA_FSISAlert”

Although the USDA previously announced recalls more generally on another Twitter feed (@USDAFoodSafety), the new feeds will more specifically target the populations most likely affected.
