Although the United States food supply is among the safest in the world, sometimes food may be unsafe or mislabeled. When there is reason to believe food is unsafe, or mislabeled, the food is recalled, or otherwise removed, from commerce. The food recall process for school nutrition programs differs depending on whether the recall affects USDA Foods or commercially purchased foods. This resource was developed to provide an overview of the recall process for USDA Foods with a focus on school nutrition programs.

For more information about recalls of both USDA Foods and commercial foods, sign-up for free recall alert notifications. USDA Commodity Alert System

Self register for a free email notification of recalls that affect USDA Foods at www.envoyprofiles.com/USDA-ALERTS/

FoodSafety.gov – To find the latest information about food recalls and to sign-up for free email notification of all FSIS and FDA food recalls, visit www.foodsafety.gov/recalls.

Los empleados pueden ser el elemento más crítico para mantener las instalaciones de nutrición escolar seguras e higiénicas. Sin embargo, también pueden ser responsables de la introducción de un riesgo de seguridad de alimentos en cualquier punto del proceso de producción de los alimentos.

Todos los empleados del departamento de nutrición escolar tienen mucho en juego ya que preparan y sirven alimentos cada día.

  • Servir alimentos que sean almacenados, preparados, cocidos o manejados inapropiadamente pueden ocasionar que los clientes se enfermen seriamente, incluso de manera mortal.
  • Las prácticas inseguras de nutrición en las escuelas también ponen en peligro a los empleados.
  • La buena reputación de un programa de nutrición escolar debe construirse basado en el servicio de alimentos seguros.

“Seguridad de Alimentos en las Escuelas” ha sido diseñada para ser muy interactiva de modo que usted pueda involucrarse activamente para aprender los conceptos de seguridad de alimentos que necesita para preparar y servir los alimentos con seguridad y para mantener las instalaciones de nutrición de su escuela seguras e higiénicas.

The Food Safety for Summer Meals resource page provides resources for site managers to train the staff of a Summer Food Service Program site on food safety best practices.

These resources promote food safety practices essential to a successful summer meals site including: practicing good personal hygiene, checking and documenting food temperatures, and proper cleaning and sanitizing. These practices reduce the risk of a foodborne illness outbreak and ensure that the food children consume is safe. This prevents children and staff from becoming sick, possibly causing the shutdown of the site and bad publicity for the site, sponsor, and program.

The information presented on this resource page may or may not apply to all summer meals sites, but can be adapted by your program as applicable.

These documents were designed to provide school nutrition programs with resources for planning, maintaining operations, and recovering from a loss of water service. Resources include a resource guide; checklists for planning, responding, and recovering from a loss of water; and posters for a water emergency. Published 2016.
