The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued two resources for retail food establishments that are reopening after closing or partially closing in response to COVID-19.
The resources include a Food Safety Checklist with considerations for retail food establishments when restarting or resuming operations and an infographic identifying best practices for reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic. Much of the guidance will be familiar. In light of the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, FDA recommendations warrant a particular review and possible modification to companies’ existing policies and practices.
