Food Safety


Food Safety We conclude a series on the politics of farming today with an examination of the food safety system in North Carolina. Our experts cover many areas of food safety including restaurant and grocery store inspections, farm produce policies and protecting consumers against food-borne illnesses. No agricultural policy is more important than the safe handling of the food that journeys from farm to fork. Join us for a look at the safety of the food we eat.
