Modern food safety approach is to focus on prevention as opposed to correction. With the recent enactment of The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the FDA will have a legislative mandate to require comprehensive, science-based preventive controls across the food supply. The potential introduction of foodborne pathogens during the growing, harvesting, packing, processing, and transporting of foods necessitates that producers and processors understand pathogen sources to reduce risk. This LSU AgCenter Food Safety website will provide you information on the emerging food safety issues, programs we offer, links to presentations, publications, and other websites related to food safety.
