The American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF) has added six new videos to its "Ask the Meat Science Guy" consumer education video series.
The videos are currently featured on AMI's YouTube channel, Meat News Network: www.youtube.com/meatnewsnetwork.
In the videos, Randy Huffman, president of the AMI Foundation, addresses such topics as: sodium nitrite benefits and safety; cooking steaks vs. hamburgers; safe meat handling during pregnancy; the USDA meat inspection process; how to tell when meat is fresh; how hot dogs and sausages are made; "enhanced" meat products; kosher meat; and the difference between fresh and aged beef.
"Social and new media outlets like YouTube are really emerging as influential forces in educating consumers and shaping their opinions and behaviors," said AMI s.v.p. Janet Riley. "Consumer research shows there is a knowledge gap in food safety information, and we hope that these YouTube videos will help close that gap."
