Food Safety

The health of people in society is directly related to the health of crops and produce, food animals and the environments in which they are produced.  The availability of safe food improves the health of people and is a basic human right.   Our food supply and our pet’s food supply are becoming increasingly global.

Water Quality

Researchers in the Western Center for Food Safety’s Atwill Water and Foodborne Zoonotic Disease Laboratory located within the Western Institute for Food Safety and Security are playing an important role in ensuring safe water for agriculture through water quality surveillance and sharing of data with produce farmers and irrigation districts.
