ALLERGENS: Avoid a Reaction by Taking Action.
This year’s annual National Food Safety Month (NFSM) spotlights the increasing importance of food allergen awareness throughout the month of September. Here you will find videos, program materials and various activities that focus attention on keeping diners safe from serious, and sometimes fatal, food allergy reactions.
Food allergies are on the rise, already affecting more than 15 million Americans. To enhance their safety whenever they dine out, the National Restaurant Association has partnered with Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) to create greater public awareness as well as an entirely new training program for all foodservice workers: ServSafe Allergens™ Online Course.
SCA, makers of the Tork® brand of away-from-home paper products, are sponsoring this year’s NFSM.
