Abstract

The Food Safety Network (FSnet), the Agriculture Network (Agnet), the Animal Network (AnimalNet) and most recently, the Functional Food Network (FFnet) are risk analysis tool that provide current, generalized, public risk perception, management and assessment information about food safety risks, culled from journalistic and scientific sources around the world and condensed into short items or stories that make up the daily postings. Results from surveys and personal interviews with recipients of the four listserves demonstrate they are regarded as useful tools to manage food safety risks, providing recipients with a much broader notion of foodborne risk and helping in the formation of risk messages.
