Full Text: The Food Safety Research Information Office (FSRIO) at the National Agricultural Library was established by congressional mandate as a comprehensive source of food safety research information. Among the most important features of FSRIO is a unique database of more than 5,100 research activities, including ongoing projects funded by U.S. and international government agencies as well as private organizations. For researchers, FSRIO's Research Projects Database offers an efficient insight into research that is currently under way but does not yet have published results. It serves as a valuable adjunct to literature searches.

Other features of the FSRIO website include regularly updated technical reviews on food pathogens and other hot topics, such as food biotechnology, and a database of food safety training materials for consumers and professionals. There are also links to resources on sanitation and safety standards, emergency preparedness, and other topics as well as the latest news stories on food recalls and disease outbreaks.
