A five month project funded by Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE): The goal of this project is to provide guidance to farmers, millers, and distillers about whether and at what levels DON contaminated grain can be safely used in distillation, thus impacting farmer, miller, and distiller decision-making in selling and using these grains. We […]
A project funded by Center for Produce Safety (CPS). Renewable for up to three years. The produce industry needs a model to (i) identify the most important risks in a supply chain and (ii) identify which practices and control strategies appropriately reduce risks of contamination events that could lead to product recalls and illness outbreaks. […]
A 1-year and 3 month project funded by US poultry: The hypotheses of this project are: The project will test these hypotheses with the following objectives:
A 10-week project funded by CRA Corn Refiners Association: The hypothesis tested in this project is that pilot-scale adaptations of industrially relevant unit operations of steeping, peroxide treatment, and drying, reduce counts of the indicator organism Enterococcus faecium in inoculated challenge studies. The specific objectives to test this hypothesis are:
Our group will collaborate with PI (Yi-Cheng Wang) on a two-year project funded by USDA NIFA The long-term goal of this project is to develop a revolutionary, yet inexpensive and easy-to-use, decontamination technique, whereby retailers and other stakeholders can readily minimize cross-contamination and improve food safety. This will ultimately benefit the American people by increasing […]
A 1-year and 3 month project funded by IAFNS: The overall objective of this project is to build a simulation for powdered product testing. This work would provide not just comprehensive guidance on generic powder plans, but a tool for industry to assess their specific concerns when working to improve their food safety testing plans. […]
Our group is a co-PI (Lead PI is Dr. Prescott) on this three year research and Extension project funded by: Objectives: More information can be found in the funder’s database.
A three year project funded by: The overall objective of this project is to demonstrate and validate that aggregative swab sampling can be used for powerful preharvest leafy green food safety testing that will ultimately allow producers to better protect public health by identifying adulterating pathogens before they enter the food supply. More information can […]
A two-year project funded by the: With the following three objectives: More information on the project can be found in the funder’s database.
A 5-year project from USDA NIFA Hatch funds to support the following project objectives: More information can be found in the funder’s database.
