Summary

The Kansas State University Consortium Team continues to take the farm to table approach to address food safety challenges. That approach includes the continued development of methods for hazard detection, intervention strategies to control those hazards, and information transfer of technologies to the scientific community, the federal government, the food industries, and consumers; and the integration of related economic, policy, and trade implications. The primary focus of the work at Kansas State University continues to be methods development for the isolation, detection, and quantification of microbial and chemical hazards and the elimination of those hazards. This approach helps address food security as well as food safety.
