September 13, 2023

Protecting consumers from foodborne illness and ensuring that food systems and supply chains are safe and reliable is a top concern for states.

Join Patrick Guzzle, vice president of food science for the National Restaurant Association, and Emily Sampson, a policy analyst who covers environmental health and resilience topics for NCSL, for a lively discussion on the benefits of adopting the newest FDA Food Code at the state level.
