Emerging Field of Food Safety Forensics

TASA ID: 1926

This webinar is structured to provide critical insight into the emerging fields of food science forensics and food safety forensics. It will examine the difference between human blood DNA and micro-organism DNA.  We will also examine how proven detection and analytical tools can be used during the investigation of food contamination and poisoning cases to help attorneys become more successful in court.  This webinar is intended to educate and inform attorneys about FDA and USDA food safety, sanitation, and GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices). Unfortunately many food contamination and poisoning cases lead to severe illnesses and even death. Because of these potential severe liabilities, it is not enough just to examine the presence and levels of causative agents and organisms, but to understand whether the manufacture had a pattern of creating a favorable environment for potentially growing and harboring these organisms.
