Food Safety

  • Consumers
    ERS researchers study how consumers react to food safety incidents, both domestically and globally, such as outbreaks and recalls. Additionally, ERS is a national leader in providing the costs of illness for select foodborne pathogens.
  • Markets, Regulation, and Policy
    ERS examines how private markets and government regulation have combined to provide meat and poultry food safety. This research covers private market mechanisms that control food safety, regulation establishing a minimum level of meat and poultry food safety quality, and innovation enhancing meat and poultry food safety.
