Food safety is in the news and on the minds of many people. Numerous foodborne illnesses have occurred in Nebraska during the last year. Most of the reported foodborne illness outbreaks have occurred from food eaten away from the home. The ServSafe® Food Safety Program is developed by the National Restaurant Association to address the growing food safety concerns of consumers for the food service staff that serve them.
