September is National Food Safety Education Month
It’s hard to believe it’s September already! Did you know that this month is National Food Safety Education Month (or NFSEM)?
NFSEM is driven by the National Restaurant Association, so it is largely aimed at the restaurant and food service industries. But food safety affects us all, so we thought we’d take a moment to remind you about food safety in your own home –specifically as it relates to canned seafood (which, of course, happens to be our specialty).
Canned Seafood, Food Safety, and You
Crown Prince canned seafood products are prepared in FDA approved and inspected facilities, which are also under the watchful eye of national and state health officials, as applicable by region. We’re proud to work only with partners who uphold the highest standards of safety and health for both our food and the skilled workers who prepare it.
Our products are shelf stable. As long as the can is not bulging, leaking, or expired, a Crown Prince product is ready to eat whenever you need it. This makes us a great choice for disaster preparedness kits, which rely on shelf-stable, nutrient dense foods that are convenient to store and require little or no preparation to eat. As a bonus, our products are far tastier than most non-perishables.
This month, give a nod to National Food Safety Education Month by taking an hour or two out of your schedule to check for damaged food in your own fridge or pantry. And if you don’t have a disaster preparedness kit, then now is the perfect time to start one. For more advice on what to put in your kit, use this checklist from Ready.gov.
