Canada grows food safety surveillance
Canada has expanded its food safety surveillance system to help prevent foodborne illness.

The Healthy and Safe Food for Canadians Framework​ details how government is informing consumers about healthy and safe food choices, to minimize food safety risks and protection when unsafe foods enter the marketplace.

FoodNet Canada has been expanded to include a site Alberta.

The sites collect information about foodborne illness and trace those illnesses back to their sources, such as food, water and animals.

It identifies sources that are causing illness and tracks their causes over time to help agencies take the right prevention measures to keep food safe and prevent illnesses.

Pat Vanderkooy, registered dietitian with dietitians of Canada, said: "Protecting the health of Canadians requires the government's commitment to regulating what's allowed in our food, how it's labelled, as well as monitoring and reporting on the safety of the food supply."
