Mission Statement

STOP Foodborne Illness is a national nonprofit public health organization dedicated to the prevention of illness and death from foodborne pathogens. · Advocating for sound public policy · Building public awareness · Assisting those impacted by foodborne illness

Description

CDC data tells us that every year: Millions become ill. Over 100,000 are hospitalized. And 3,000 consumers die in the United States from foodborne illness.

Stop Foodborne Illness is the voice for all who want to turn awareness into action. We advocate tirelessly to regulate food handling and processing from farm to table. We partner with Congress, the USDA, the FDA, the CDC, and other relevant agencies and organizations to mitigate food safety risks through policy and legislation. We offer peer-to-peer mentoring for victims and families all over the country. We empower others to become food safety advocates themselves through free resources and up-to-date information.

Since STOP Foodborne Illness was founded, we have been instrumental in passing food safety laws including the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Most of all, we are proud of our nationwide community of 31,000 activists and supporters.
