USDA to announce food recalls via Twitter


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.

Full story at USDA via Food Beast.
