Food for Your Soul this Holiday Season
Tips on Safe Food Preparation During the Holidays
Three federal agencies have collaborated on formatted articles, also known as "mat releases," that focus on food safety during the holidays. These mat releases, specifically targeted for African American families, are ready-to-print articles that are free to use in any publication. These articles focus on tips for safely preparing meat, poultry, and produce.
These articles were written by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The two formatted articles are available at CDC's media web site, http://www.cdc.gov/media/subtopic/matte.htm, at FDA's website at www.fda.gov and at USDA's website at www.usda.gov. Please call (404) 639-3286 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of the formatted article you would like to use and the name of your publication. An accompanying podcast is available at http://www2a.cdc.gov/podcasts/.
