AMIF Funds Four Research Projects

The AMI Foundation recently funded four new food safety research projects totaling more than $200,000. Projects include determining Salmonella-contamination levels in bone marrow, neck skin, and spleen of turkey carcasses in relation to Salmonella-status in the ground product; Investigating the development of thermal processing tools to improve the safety of ready-to-eat meat and poultry products; a white paper on human illness caused by Salmonella from all food and non-foods vectors; and a white paper on the public health impact of multi-drug resistant pathogens.  The white paper on human illness caused by Salmonella is jointly funded by the Beef Checkoff, the Pork Checkoff and the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association.
