  • What is Probabilistic Food Safety Exposure

    What is Probabilistic Food Safety Exposure Assessment? There are a myriad of chemicals in food products consumed by populations. Each chemical in its own right may not be harmful to the population, but in combination with other chemicals, there may be risk of high levels of exposure to potentially harmful substances. An effective probabilistic exposure assessment needs to handle the ...

  • Survey of food safety behaviour in Nevada child caregivers

    We assessed the food safety practices of supervisors in Nevada childcare facilities. Although caregivers have a basic understanding of food safety, specific concerns exist, e.g. 32% of facilities indicated that they prepare food for others when experiencing diarrhoea and 51% indicated a little to no knowledge of hazard analysis and critical control point system guidelines. We found that people ...

  • Transfer model of lead in soil‐carrot (Daucus carota L.) system and its food safety thresholds in soil

    Reliable empirical models describing lead (Pb) transfer in soil‐plant systems are needed to improve soil environmental quality standards. A greenhouse experiment was conducted to develop soil‐plant transfer models to predict Pb concentrations in carrot (Daucus carota L.). Soil thresholds for food safety were then derived inversely using the prediction model in view of the maximum allowable ...
