This interactive roundtable is intended to engender lively discussion of important food safety topics. It is assumed audience participants will have a basic understanding of the unresolved issues surrounding the topics to be discussed in the symposium. The session will cover three topics: “The good, the bad, and the ugly foods: Should we encourage the consumption of “ugly” and expired foods?”; “Who’s to blame? Do consumers own a piece of food safety?”; and, “Which is the real ‘obesogen'—pizza or the pizza box?” Each topic will include a 7-minute presentation in support of (Yes, Pizza) followed by a 7-minute presentation in opposition of (No, Pizza Box) the proposed topic question.  Each speaker will have 3 minutes for extemporaneous rebuttals. A 6-minute question/answer session will then follow to allow for audience participation. We will have electronic polling of the audience to allow for a Yes/No vote on each topic question prior to and following the discussion to evaluate whether people’s views have been changed by the presentations.
