USDA goes mobile with food safety information

The US Department of Agriculture wanted to make food safety information available to people where and when they actually need it, like in the kitchen, at the barbecue grill or the grocery store. So they developed a web-based mobile application to answer some of the most common questions about preparing, handling and storing food. The app, which they’re calling “Ask Karen,” lets users search through a list of about 1,500 questions designed to help prevent foodborne illness. It’s optimized for Android, iPhone and iPad devices, but will work with most mobile phones.
