COLUMBUS -- Consumers with food safety questions are being encouraged to contact The Ohio State University Extension's Food Safety Hotline at 800-752-2751 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The hot line has been operated since 1985 by Ohio State's Food Industries Center. Now, a grant from CIFT, with support from Kroger, has allowed the university to hire a team of students to respond to consumer questions. The students are supported by personnel from Ohio State's Food Industries Center and faculty experts from the Department of Food Science and Technology, Department of Human Nutrition, and OSU Extension.

After hours, consumers can leave a message and phone number to get a response.
