FSA launches ACT e-newsletter

The FSA launched its Acting on Campylobacter Together (ACT) e-newsletter, yesterday.











Campylobacter is the most common cause of human bacterial food poisoning in the UK.  Each year it is estimated to be responsible for about 280,000 cases of food poisoning.  Up to 80% of cases can be attributed to raw poultry meat.

To tackle this, and reduce contamination on UK-produced chickens, the whole food chain needs to play its part and the FSA is spearheading the ACT campaign from 'farm to fork' – including chicken producers, processors, caterers and retailers.

The regular newsletter will capture the good work taking place and bring together and share information on the Government and industry wide campaign. You can see the content of the first edition via the the link below.

We will also be looking for articles for future editions of this regular bulletin so if you have a story to tell about how you are tackling campylobacter, then we want to hear about it and share your progress.  Please send your articles (maximum 1 side A4) together with any supporting photographs
