Keep Food Safe from Bacteria

The Fight BAC!® campaign, developed in conjunction with the President's National Food Safety Initiative, is a far-reaching, ambitious and consumer-friendly public education campaign focused on safe food handling. Our goal is to educate consumers on four simple steps they can take to fight foodborne bacteria and reduce their risk of foodborne illness.

Learn why Thermy™ says, "It's Safe to Bite When the Temperature is Right!"

The Thermy™campaign is a national consumer education initiative developed by the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

This national consumer education campaign is designed to promote food thermometer use. Supporting the Fight BAC!® message of "cook," this campaign is based on studies showing significant risk for foodborne illness when color is used to judge when food has been cooked to a safe temperature.
