Prevent A Trip To The ER Due To Food Poisoning - Tips to Stay Safe from The Partnership for Food Safety Education

December 18, 2020

The last thing we need right now is to have to make a trip to the ER because of something we ate. As we prepare our holiday meals, it is crucial to prevent food poisoning. Each year in the U.S. 48 million illnesses, 128,000 hospitalizations, and 3,000 deaths can be traced to foodborne pathogens. The Partnership for Food Safety Education provides educational resources and tools.

Shelley Feist explains how we can keep ourselves and our family safe from foodborne illness.

Shelley Feist is Executive Director of the non-profit Partnership for Food Safety Education. At the Partnership she has focused on the delivery of evidence-based food safety information to consumers, on developing networks of health and food safety educators, and on organizational development and effectiveness.

She has appeared on NBC’s Today Show and other media on the topic of safe food handling for consumers. Prior to joining the Partnership, Shelley was with the Pew Charitable Trusts. She has worked for two U.S Senators, focusing on appropriations and domestic policy, and was Director of Government Liaison for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
