Food Safety Focus (180th Issue, July 2021) – Food Incident Highlight

Food Safety Day 2021 - Read and check,
Be like Detective CFS!

The annual World Food Safety Day launched by the World Health Organization aims to draw attention and inspire action to help prevent, detect and manage foodborne risks. The CFS has been echoing the World Food Safety Day since 2018 through its own Food Safety Day. The theme of Food Safety Day 2021 is ‘Read and check, Be like Detective CFS!’ which aims to enhance the public awareness of inherent risks concerning raw or undercooked foods, especially for susceptible populations.

A publicity campaign started on 7 June, including launching social media posts, newspaper columns, radio interviews and new videos of the 'CFS Movie Channel' series. Education materials will be prepared and talks will be delivered to food handlers, schools, staff of residential homes, domestic helpers and caregivers, focusing on the food safety issues of high-risk foods, Five Keys to Food Safety and other good hygiene practices. Please visit the CFS Facebook for our latest activities and information.
