Food safety refers to the measures taken to ensure that the food we eat is free from harmful contaminants and pathogens that could cause illness or disease. It involves the proper handling, preparation, and storage of food, as well as the regulation and monitoring of food production, processing, and distribution.

Some common food safety issues include contamination from bacteria like Salmonella or E. coli, improper storage or handling of food that can lead to spoilage or growth of harmful bacteria, and the use of additives or chemicals in food that can be harmful to human health.

To ensure food safety, it is important to follow good hygiene practices when handling food, such as washing hands regularly, keeping food surfaces clean, and separating raw meat from other foods. Consumers should also be mindful of food expiration dates and properly store food to prevent spoilage.

Government agencies and organizations also play an important role in ensuring food safety by regulating food production and distribution, monitoring food products for contaminants, and conducting inspections of food facilities.
