Food Safety Crisis Requires Cooperation At All Levels Of Society

August 19, 2010: 10:37 AM EST
Several experts on farm animals and food safety at Cornell University have offered advice on the huge recall – at least 380 million eggs – in recent weeks because of salmonella infections. A microbiologist warned that infected hens show no clinical signs of the disease, though the infection is lodged in the ovaries and then transmitted to the egg. But there are effective means for producers to prevent such hen infections. A veterinarian who noted that salmonella causes many food poisoning cases beyond the egg outbreak said food safety problems need to be attacked “at all levels and at all transmission pathways.” Another veterinarian agreed, saying that national and state programs to control food contamination are certainly critical, but individuals also play a role by handling food safely.
