Food Safety

Food safety deals with those hazards that have physical, chemical and microbiological effects to make food injurious to the health. It also describes handling, preparation and storage of food in order to prevent food-borne illness. Food safety often overlaps with food defense to prevent harm to consumers. Food can transmit diseases from person to person as well as serve as a growth medium for bacteria that can cause food poisoning. So food safety is a significant public health issue. Every year, approximately 2 million people die due to unsafe food. More than 200 diseases occur because of harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites or chemical substances in food.

Food Safety Laws and Regulations

An effective food legislation and food control is required for every nation to promote a safe food supply to protect consumers from contaminated foods. Food law is divided in two parts: Food Act and Food Regulations. Food acts set broad principles, and food regulation contains detailed provisions. A revision of regulations is necessary because of new scientific knowledge and changes in food processing technology to protect public health.
