Mobile Applications (apps)

 

An application or "app" is a software program designed to run on mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets.  To make our digital content available anytime, anywhere, FSIS offers these apps for your Apple and Android devices.  Use them to keep better informed about the safety of your meat, poultry and egg products.

 

Ask Karen

Ask Karen

 

Get it on Google Play

Ask Karen provides 24/7 assistance and tips on preventing foodborne illness, safe food handling and storage, and safe preparation of meat, poultry, and egg products. Mobile Ask Karen has all the same features as Ask Karen from your desktop or laptop. You can get answers to your food safety questions while at the grocery store, farmers market, in your kitchen, or while at your barbecue grill.

Using your mobile device, you can chat live with a food safety expert on weekdays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST.  The app also provides the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline number (1-888-MPHotline) in case you want to speak to someone directly.


Food Keeper

FoodKeeper

 

Get it on Google Play

The FoodKeeper can help you use food while at peak quality and reduce waste. The storage times listed are intended as useful guidelines and are not hard-and-fast rules. Some foods may deteriorate more quickly while others may last longer than the times suggested. The times will vary depending on the growing conditions, harvesting techniques, manufacturing processes, transportation and distribution conditions, nature of the food, and storage temperatures. Remember to buy foods in reasonable quantities and rotate the products in your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer.

Every year, billions of pounds of good food go to waste in the U.S. because consumers are not sure of its quality or safety. By reducing food waste through buying appropriate quantities, storing foods properly, cooking what is needed and composting, consumers can save money and reduce the amount of food going to landfills.


MPI Directory

MPI Directory

 

Get it on Google Play

The USDA MPI Directory provides access to information on regulated establishments that produce meat, poultry, and/or egg products as regulated by USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.  This app allows customers to look up or search establishments by location or Zip code, type of inspection, establishment name or number and type of establishment.
