- Who We Are
- How We Support You
- Be a BAC Fighter
The pressing need for cooperation in consumer food safety education was framed in a 1996 report, “Putting the Food Handling Issue on the Table: the Pressing Need for Food Safety Education.” The non-profit Partnership for Food Safety Education was formed in 1997 when government agencies, industry, and consumer groups pledged to work together to develop the first science-based, consumer education program, Fight BAC!®. The campaign’s four core actionable messages of Clean, Separate, Cook, and Chill remain the fundamental basis of consumer education in safe food handling.
