USDA symbol in line with those of White House, Department of Health and Human Services.

Official colors of the USDA symbol are dark blue, PMS 288, and dark green, PMS 343.

The USDA logo shall be reproduced in either one or two colors. The official colors for the USDA symbol are dark blue (PMS 288) and dark green (PMS 343). When reproduced in one color, the symbol shall be black. When the symbol is placed on a color field, it should be reversed to white.

The USDA symbol is designated for display on all information products of the Department. To ensure maximum visibility, the preferred position of the symbol on most information products is the top left corner.

When used in conjunction with symbol of other public and/or private-sector partners, the logo should be given equal placement and may be displayed without the Department name. If all of the symbols represent Federal organizations, the symbols should be placed in alphabetical order. If the organizations are a mix of Federal and non-Federal, the lead Federal agency symbol should appear first with the remaining symbols ordered as dictated by the situation.

Talking Points

The [Name of Organization] has teamed up with the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service to promote food safety during the summer.

We have food safety experts available to help answer questions your [readers/listeners] may have, including:

  • How can I reduce my risk of foodborne illness during summer months?
  • How do I know when my hamburgers and other meat and poultry items are done when grilling?
  • How long will my leftovers last in the refrigerator before they go bad?

By answering these questions and many others, we can help keep families free from food poisoning this holiday.  Please let us know what days and times work for you to schedule an on-air interview. If you would like, we can also provide pre-recorded interviews that can air at your convenience.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you.
