First let’s talk about who the FDA is and what they do and review.
The FDA is the US Food and Drug Administration and what they do, is, they’re responsible for protecting public health by ensuring the safety and security of medication, biological products (meaning things made with sugar, proteins or having to do with cells and tissues), medical devices and the nation’s food supply (they even review cosmetics..for my glamour people out there!)
So now we know who the FDA is and what they do, now let’s talk about what foods they regulate. They regulate bottled water, infant formula, some Meat and Poultry, Dairy and Vegetables.
One thing that would be good is eating Kosher food. Due to religion of Judaism, Kosher food would be highly sanitary due to their enforcement of no cross contamination with the separation of meat and dairy. You’ll also want to avoid foods that are processed and does not require cooking. Those are things like deli meats, processed cheese, anything that you can think of along this line you would want to avoid. You should also avoid unpasteurized fruit juices, fresh vegetables and produce. Unless you have your own garden or trust someone who has a garden, I would not suggest purchasing from grocery stores without the proper food inspection.
You should be consuming foods that requires cooking, this is to make sure that you are getting rid of bacteria. Please cook all food to correct temperatures, refrigerate properly and avoid cross contamination. Meat is regulated by the USDA and they said they would continue monitoring it for our safety during this shutdown, however still take all precautions.
