April 2012

By Rhondalee Dean-Royce, communications manager of the AVMA GRD

More than 10 years ago, 9/11 brought home the reality of terrorism to our nation, and we are still recovering from the devastating losses. However, there are many forms of terrorism, including bioterrorism, which our nation must be prepared to fight. Our government's commitment to protecting our country's agriculture and food systems from bioterrorism continues to be a high priority.

In this podcast on our Keep Our Food Safe website, Dr. Doug Meckes of the Department of Homeland Security discusses what's being done to keep our food supply safe from bioterrorism.

The Keep Our Food Safe website has new posts each week, so be sure to check back regularly.
