You can get all kinds of information through Twitter, and soon, you'll be able to find out what foods you need to avoid.
FOX News Radio's Pat O'Neill has details:
The Department of Agriculture is rolling out a new service that will let Twitter users be the first to know about food recalls. The USDA already has a general Twitter feed, but this one will be state-specific, posting safety alerts for meat, poultry, eggs and other products; and information about protecting food during severe weather.
The agency says the state Twitter feeds offer a better way to get information directly to people affected by recalls, which often involve particular geographic areas where food was distributed.
