Catching up with the 2022 FDA Retail Food Protection Seminar

Apr 04, 2023 | Anu Varma

The 2022 U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Retail Food Seminar: Safe Food Prep: It’s in Your Hands was held virtually from September 19-22. Hosted in 2022 by the National Association of County and City Health Officials, this annual retail food protection seminar provides an opportunity for the FDA to discuss retail food issues of mutual concern with our federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) partners. The 2022 seminar had a focus on norovirus, including assessing employee health, investigating norovirus related foodborne illnesses, and implementing successful employee health intervention strategies. 

All content from the Seminar is now available at our NEW website: https://virtualcommunities.naccho.org/fdaretailfoodprotection2022/home.

The website hosts the recordings, workshops, and files, along with information on FDA’s Retail Food Teams and stories from the field shared live by attendees. This includes:
