FSIS Faces of Food Safety
When American consumers think of the United States Department of Agriculture, it's almost always in connection with the mark of inspection that can be found on labels and products.

That mark serves as a seal of approval, bolstering consumers' confidence that the meat, poultry and processed egg products they are about to enjoy are safe and wholesome. And that confidence comes as a result of the work of the men and women of the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

"Faces of Food Safety" introduces you to the men and women who play a role in making our food safe.
