The Oklahoma State University Department of Animal Science has distinguished programs in teaching, research, and extension. Building upon its tradition of excellence, our department discovers, develops, and distributes scientific knowledge to advance the animal and food industries.

We are the fifth largest animal science department in the country and one of the largest departments on campus with over 1,000 undergraduate students, but with a small town feel, a caring attitude and a commitment to every student. We are one of the few land-grant institutions who still maintain livestock and wheat facilities for teaching, research and extension.

Food Safety for Older Adults

Food safety is important for everyone – but it’s especially important for you. That’s why the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Food and Drug Administration have prepared this booklet. It is designed to provide practical guidance on how to reduce your risk of foodborne illness. In addition to this guide, we encourage you to check with your physician or healthcare provider to indentify foods and other products that you should avoid.
