According to an article published today in the Daily Globe entitled “Opportunities Abound in Food Safety”, 2.2 million people die each year as a result of foodborne illnesses and most of them are children. Food safety is an issue that impacts every country around the world and therefore, more and more people are viewing food safety as an essential aspect of producing food products around the world.
Common pathogens associated with food production are campylobacter, listeria and salmonella. Pacific Vet Group USA is currently developing a product that will drastically reduce salmonella in the chicken crop by changing the current mode of processing chickens. The product will be administered to chickens at feed withdrawal and will reduce the potential for salmonella contamination.
For companies looking to improve food safety, like Pacific Vet Group USA, economic benefits are available because foodborne illnesses tied to processing facilities, farms, or even restaurants have been known to put them out of business.
