INTRO: Consumers can ask food safety questions any time of day, instantly from their smartphones thanks to a U-S-D-A created virtual food safety representative. The USDA’s Bob Ellison has more. (1:32)

IN THE GROCERY STORE AND NEED TO KNOW FOOD PREP TIMES AND PROCEDURES? THE ANSWERS ARE AS CLOSE AS YOUR SMART PHONE WITH MOBILE ASK KAREN.

Catherine Cochran, USDA FSIS: So say you’re at the meat counter and you want to cook a steak for dinner that night, but you’re not quite sure how high you’re supposed to cook it, maybe if you are going to have enough time to cook it. You can look it up in Ask Karen. Mobile Ask Karen has food safety information on all types of food. You can actually search through her data base of over thirteen hundred questions. You can sort by pork, by chicken, by beef, by even vegetables. We’ve got information on everything. You can also live-chat with a specialist. Anything you want to know about food safety. How high you’re supposed to cook something, to what temperature.

U-S DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE FOOD SAFETY AND INSPECTION SERVICE PERSONNEL WERE AT A WASHINGTON D-C GROCERY STORE SPREADING THE WORD TO SHOPPERS ABOUT MOBILE ASK KAREN.

Cochran: We want people using Mobile ask Karen on the go, so a grocery store is a perfect example of where we want people using her. You just go to M dot Ask Karen dot gov. If you have an Android you can download the app from the app store. If you have an I-Phone we recommend just adding it to your home screen. It’s an easy way to bookmark. You can still tap and it will take you directly to the site.

AND MOBILE ASK KAREN COMES IN HANDY AT COOK OUTS TO ANSWER FOOD PREP QUESTIONS.

Cochran: There are always times when you are out at a cookout and people have different opinions on when you’re supposed to take those burgers off the grill. It’s helpful to have Karen with you. You can look her up, she’s on the go. You don’t have to go to your computer, or call anyone. You’ve got your answer right in your hand.
