With news about COVID-19 detected on food, like frozen chicken wings and fish, you might be wondering whether you can actually get the coronavirus from food or food packaging. Now the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is officially weighing in with some clarity—and reassurance.

The FDA, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) all agree that there is “no credible evidence of food or food packaging associated with or as a likely source of viral transmission,” and the risk of contracting COVID-19 this way is “exceedingly low,” according to an FDA announcement from acting
