Foodborne illness is a serious public health concern around the world. Foods can become contaminated with pathogenic bacteria through exposure to animal manure, inadequate processing controls, cross-contamination, and improper storage or cooking. Production delays, plant shut-downs, food spoilage, brand protection and product recalls cost money as well as a company’s reputation. Therefore, cost-effective, easy-to-use, and accurate testing methods are necessary to ensure that the consumer receives nothing but the safest food.
