About the Author
JOE KIVETT, CO-AUTHOR After years of calling his mother each time he had a question related to food safety or quality, Joe began researching the answers for himself. His original mission was to create a chart that outlined how long food products last. While conducting his research, Joe discovered a wealth of food-safety and food-quality information that complemented his food-longevity chart, which led to the creation of this simple guide, written specifically for the consumer. DR. MARK TAMPLIN, CO-AUTHOR Dr. Tamplin holds a PhD in Medical Sciences, specializing in Microbiology & Immunology. Over a 30-year international career working as a university researcher and advisor to government agencies, his research has explored how pathogens exist in the environment and food, and then how they cause disease in humans. Tamplin’s work has been published in over 110 scientific articles and a dozen books. With his expertise in food safety and enthusiasm to educate, becoming co-author of The Food Safety Book was a natural fit. He has been appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture to serve on the National Advisory Committee on Microbiological Criteria for Foods. Early in 2016, Dr. Tamplin blended his extensive knowledge of science with adventure in Phage, the first novel in his science thriller trilogy. Dr. Tamplin grew up in West Virginia and now splits his time between Atlanta and Australia. DR. GERALD J. KIVETT, CONTRIBUTING AUTHOR After earning his Wings of Gold with the U.S. Navy flight program in 1966, Dr. Kivett flew with Patrol Squadron Five in Jacksonville, FL, the fourth oldest squadron in the U.S. Navy. Discovering a passion for teaching and an interest in the medical field, Dr. Kivett returned to school and received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Florida. Following six years of employment at two Naval Hospitals, he left active duty in the Navy and started his private practice in Orlando in 1984. Dr. Kivett eventually retired with the rank of Captain after 24 years of service. Educating his patients on a healthy lifestyle is an important aspect of his practice. Having seen a great number of food poisoning cases that could have been avoided with basic proper food safety knowledge, Dr. Kivett was pleased to write the chapter on foodborne illness in his son’s first published book, THE FOOD SAFETY BOOK. Dr. Kivett continues to stamp out disease as a family practice doctor in Orlando today.

This is a wonderful reference book for those who are away from home for the first time. Heck even I am using this as a reference book and I am a stay at home mom who has been cooking for a family of six. (2 adults 4 pickie eating kids)
The other day I was looking at the package of hot dog sitting in the frig unopened and I was wondering how long can they be like that? Will they go bad if I don't open them? If they are opened how long to I have before they go bad? I realized I had no idea. All I knew was that hot dogs needed to boil or be cooked to 165 degrees before eating.
I grabbed the book and quickly looked it up and found what I was looking for. I found what I had been questioning about lunch meats as well. I will be better able to prepare family lunches and dinners know what is still good and what has gone bad. It will save us lots of money because I don't be throwing away as much food thinking it has gone bad.
No saying my kids won't still wait food because they will but I don't.
I plan on giving this book away to all my friends who kids are graduating from college, new parents and newlyweds.
I am so happy I was able to review this awesome reference guide to food prep, keeping my kitchen clean and knowing if my kids get sick it wasn't my kitchen for food fault if I follow this guide.
