The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a strategic plan for risk communication, one step of a process to better communicate with healthcare professionals, patients, and consumers about potentially dangerous foods and drugs.

The plan, which was announced September 30, includes the creation of surveys for the public; a research agenda; an internal database at the FDA; a multimedia library of safe food practices that will be available for the public; and images to post when FDA-regulated products are recalled.

In June 2007, the federal agency said it had formed the Risk Communication Advisory Committee and in June 2009, it created a transparency task force.
