Helping to eliminate the risk of foodborne illness
The CDC estimates that each year, 48 million people get sick from a foodborne illness, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die.
In the US alone, the CDC estimates the cost of illnesses related to Listeria, E. coli, Norovirus and Salmonella exceeds $9B annually, not including litigation or waste associated with recalled food.
Pathogens can enter unsealed packages at any point in the supply chain and can come from several sources — the environment, equipment, packaging material, people, etc. Once the package is sealed, any temperature changes during the supply chain can result in pathogen growth and create a food safety risk, which ultimately puts the processor at risk. Fresh cut fruits and vegetables do not currently have a control point or risk reduction step for pathogens between filling and sealing the package.
