With the new administrations increased focus on food safety more and more groups are entering the fray every day. Why should those in the retail supply chain be concerned?

I received the following email from the Consumers Union today relative to food safety and specifically speaking to those that have suffered from food poisoning in the past.

Dear Ron,
You may be familiar with case of actor Dennis Quaid, whose infant twins almost died when they were injected with a massive dose of blood thinner.

The email went on to provide a link to a specific set of questions relative to my experiencing an illness in the past related to something I ate and inviting me to share my story:

To wit. Have you or a loved one become ill with food poisoning? We would like to hear your story. You are not alone — approximately one in four Americans acquire a food borne illness every year! For some people food poisoning has drastic consequences – each year some 325,000 are hospitalized

This author has written frequently about this subject and the potential negative impact that a lack of focus or mistakes in food safety can have on a company’s net earnings as well as consumer confidence. The retail supply chain requires tools that provide traceable data that includes everything from the farm to the fork.

We look forward to and appreciate your opinion.
