Restaurant industry annually devotes September to food safety

The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) joins with the National Restaurant Association (NRA) in raising awareness about food safety during September’s National Food Safety Month. This year’s focus is on the campaign’s 20th anniversary, with the theme: “National Food Safety Month 20-Year Anniversary: Top 20 Tips.”
Throughout the month of September, the LRA will focus on providing restaurant personnel with 20 years of evidence-based education, training and resources needed to make restaurant dining safer for customers.
Each week in September, restaurant owners and their employees will receive guidance and techniques from the LRA in its blog:, social media channels and its publications on these different topics:
  • Week 1- Cleaning and Sanitizing
  • Week 2- Cross-Contamination
  • Week 3- Time-Temperature Control
  • Week 4-  Personal Hygiene
  • Week 5- Allergens
“In its 20th year, the LRA recognizes now, more than ever, the importance of National Food Safety Month. We are happy to partner with the National Restaurant Association to share valuable tips with our members and the public at large, so that all kitchens are a place where food is prepared and served safely.” said LRA President & CEO Stan Harris.
