Risks associated with food safety

The great majority of people will experience a foodborne disease at some point in their lives. This highlights the importance of making sure the food we eat is not contaminated with potentially harmful bacteria, parasites, viruses, toxins and chemicals.

Food can become contaminated at any point during production, preparation and distribution. Everyone along the production chain, from producer to consumer, has a role to play to ensure the food we eat does not cause disease.

Food Safety statistics;

  • More that 200 diseases are spread through food.
  • 1 in 10 people a year fall ill from eating contaminated food.
  • Globally, 420,000 people die each year as a result of ineffectual food safety.
  • Children under 5 are particularly susceptible, with some 125,000 young children dying from foodborne diseases each year. Elderly people are also particularly vulnerable.
  • Globalisation makes food safety more complex and critical.
  • In 2015/16 the UK Food Standards Agency tested 67,515 food samples from businesses.

Applicable legislation

Enforcement of regulations on food standards, safety and hygiene is primarily the responsibility of local authorities, but the making of legislation in the UK is the function of central government and (until recently) Europe.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is the independent government agency responsible, amongst other issues, for enforcement support and advice. FSA also audit enforcement activity with respect to local authority food safety and standards controls.
