The State Food Safety Resource Survey represents a quantitative view of the food safety efforts performed by state and local regulatory agencies during a 12-month period. AFDO had previously conducted this survey in 2001 and 2003, and it greatly helped AFDO in its representation of state food safety programs during testimony in the nation’s capitol, while assessing proposed legislation for federal food safety, and providing information to federal legislators and their staff members who are actively pursuing this legislation. According to AFDO Executive Director, Joseph Corby, “The results of the newest survey could not have come at a better time, as government now considers food safety reform and appears to be headed toward an integrated national food safety system. These results clearly demonstrate the critical importance of including the enormous food safety efforts of state and local government into a national food safety system.” This latest survey compiled by AFDO includes the following staggering numbers:

Inspections performed – 4,619,256
Investigations conducted – 55,882
Samples collected and tested – 394,070
Recalls coordinated – 1,244
