International Research: Shifting the Food Safety Paradigm

Foodborne disease (FBD) is an important public health problem in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), causing considerable morbidity and mortality and, thus, having a substantial social and economic impact. Our international research currently focuses on raw beef and dairy in Ethiopia, poultry production in Kenya, and maize in Guatemala.
