No Scientific Evidence COVID-19 is Spread Through Food Consumption

You may have seen news stories suggesting you could contract COVID-19 via foods, specifically ice cream, or packaging.

Rest assured, there are no reports of individuals contracting COVID-19 via consuming frozen foods or any food, or via handling packaging.

More than a dozen public health authorities from around the world, including the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), along with leading food safety experts, all agree that there is no evidence of the spread of COVID-19 through consumption of food or food packaging, and no known cases of foodborne COVID-19.

COVID-19 is a respiratory ailment, not a foodborne one – plain and simple.
