The Center for Science in the Public Interest has released a detailed survey of food-safety challenges around the world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), contaminated food contributes to 1.5 billion annual cases of diarrhea in children, resulting in more than three million premature deaths. The report comes as food-safety officials and experts from 25 countries convene in Geneva at a landmark conference convened by CSPI, the WHO, and the Food and Agriculture Organization.

The conference will feature keynote addresses by Dr. Stuart Slorach, chairman of the Codex Alimentarius Commission, Mr. Geoffrey Podger, the chairman of the European Food Safety Authority, and Dr. Maria Neira, head of the Spanish Food Safety Organization.
