Save to active project



This chapter lists more than 100 reports and almost 50 brochures. The reports tend to be detailed investigations from a variety of organizations on specific topics relating to food safety. Most organizations make their reports available on the World Wide Web. An exception to this is the Congressional Research Service (CRS), which prepares reports for members of Congress, congressional committees, or congressional staff. These reports are prepared to further the legislative process, not for the general public. While the National Council for Science and the Environment does make some of these reports available on their Web site, these are not authorized for posting by CRS. Those who want CRS reports should contact their congressperson or senator. As the investigative arm of Congress, the Government Accounting Office (GAO) helps Congress oversee federal programs and operations to assure accountability to the American people. As part of their mission they investigate a wide variety of food safety topics. Their reports are published and archived on the GAO Web site. Reports from FDA, USDA, EPA, and CDC that deal with food safety can also be found on, the government gateway to food safety information. The organizations below are the major publishers of food safety reports. Readers wanting the most current reports should search their Web sites.

Food and Agriculture Organization
