DEAR EDITOR: As Chairman of the Partnership for
Food Safety Education I salute USDA on this great new magazine,
be FoodSafe. We have learned over the years that working together
to educate consumers across government, industry and non-profit
sectors with a clear and consistent message is the best possible
way to have an impact on reducing foodborne illness. The magazine
will be an important forum for supporting the public/private approach
to food safety education and program development. We look forward
to great success for the magazine.

DEAR EDITOR: The Food Safety and Inspection Service
of the USDA is the authority on food safety in this country. I am
thrilled to see be FoodSafe: The FSIS Magazine in print
to help educate the public on the issue of food safety. Every food
service professional in this country should read it to remain vigilant
in protecting the public against foodborne illness and to always
keep food safety top of mind. Thank you for putting out such a great
magazine at a time when our country really needs it.

DEAR EDITOR: I received a copy of the first issue
of be FoodSafe: The FSIS Magazine with a letter attached
signed by you. My mother is Jean Hillery and the tribute to her
and Tom Quadros in the back of the magazine was truly appreciated.
Thank you for sending it.

DEAR EDITOR: Thank you for sending us an advance
copy of FSIS' new publication, beFoodSafe: The FSIS Magazine.
The National Meat Association staff is very impressed with this
latest communications effort. The magazine has an excellent and
eye-catching design. It is well edited and the careful selection
of subject matter and submissions shows the hand of a true craftsman.
Overall, a fully professional project, be FoodSafe: The FSIS
Magazine raises the bar not only for FSIS and within USDA but
we hope with other government agencies, as well.
If there's any constructive criticism we might have, it's that the
title is somewhat cumbersome, but overall the magazine is a top-notch
We look forward to seeing more copies on a regular basis.

DEAR EDITOR: A copy of the new USDA magazine arrived
at my home recently. Other inspectors also downloaded a copy of
the article ("Seniority Rules!" in Around the Agency) and congratulated
me for my long career and many accomplishments. I should like to
thank you for publishing the article. I appreciate it very much.
I did not expect to get this type of recognition in my lifetime.
It was like going from rags to riches. Thank you again!
