Food Safety

Consumers in the United States enjoy the safest and healthiest food supply in the world. State agencies, including state departments of agriculture, play a vital role in implementing and enforcing our nation's system of food safety and inspection laws. NASDA works on a wide variety of issues related to labeling, inspection, and regulation of raw and processed food (including meat, poultry, and seafood) and food production, processing and marketing methods and technologies to ensure human safety and nutrition.
