One of the three most critical food safety issues facing the food industry today is environmental contamination of ready-to-eat foods (RTEs). Ready-to-eat foods have no kill step applied between the sale of the product and consumption by consumers. Demand for such product is drastically increasing as consumers look for increasing levels of convenience. 

Over the past several years, FDA recall investigations have repeatedly shown that most farms are impacted by a myriad of environmental bacterial contaminants, man applied chemicals and impossible to remove physical hazards. The FDA has failed to report these findings due to the inability of science and technology to quickly test for and verify such contaminants prior to shipment to market. 

In other words, there is no lower tier solution available to protect the downstream supply chain or the consuming public.
