Employees and employers in the restaurant and food service industries, what is the correct answer to the following question:

Q: What month is National Food Safety month?
A:  Every month! 

That being said, The National Restaurant Association named September “National Food Safety Month” for the first time back in 1994. Now an annual event each September, National Food Safety Month is dedicated as a time to “heighten awareness about the importance of food safety education”. The Association offers numerous tools, videos, and activities meant to get the restaurant and food service industries talking about, learning about, and reviewing food safety standards. You can find a full range of these materials at

So, restaurant and food service employees, wish your fellow industry colleagues a “Happy National Food Safety Month!” throughout September. In fact, why not do the same for the other 11 months of the year as well?
