President Obamaís directive to upgrade the nation's food safety system, the
White House Food Safety Working Group, led by Agriculture Secretary Tom
Vilsack and of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius,
launched a Web siteófoodsafetyworkinggroup.govóto provide information about
the groupís activities and progress.
The Web site, foodsafetyworkinggroup.gov,
will be an important resource for people who want to learn about the
current food safety network as well as stakeholders and organizations which
are working to upgrade America's food safety system for the 21st century.
The site features social bookmarking tools including an RSS feed and a
widget that can be downloaded to help stay informed.
Last week, representatives
from the White House Food Safety Working Group met and outlined principles
to meet the Presidentís goal. In the weeks to come, the Food Safety Working
Group will provide additional opportunities to engage stakeholders in
conversations and help shape these principles.
