A branded IFT graphic with the words, In the spotlight this month

Each month, IFT curates theme-based content and delivers it to you in this space in hopes that it propels your work to feed the planet and advance the science of food. Our September Content Spotlight explores food safety and foodborne illness. The landscape is critical: each year, 48 million people in the United States—that’s one in six—are sickened by foodborne disease, and of those, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Below you’ll find IFT resources that inform, inspire, and enable the science of food community to navigate food safety challenges faster and more efficiently. Hear from food safety thought leaders and advocates, including IFT’s senior food safety and traceability scientist. Learn about packaging solutions that combine safety with sustainability. And dig into a vast collection of IFT articles, videos, feature stories, and more to help navigate everything from safely bagging groceries to spotting the growing incidence of food fraud.
