Research Publications (Food Safety)

The Food Safety Publications tracks research that is published across national and international peer-reviewed journals. Recent articles are available ahead of print and searchable by Journal, Article Title, and Category. The research publications are tracked across six categories: Bacterial Pathogens, Chemical Contaminants, Natural Toxins, Parasites, Produce Safety, and Viruses. Articles produced by USDA Grant Funding Agencies and FDA Grant Funding Agencies are also tracked.

  1. LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS cross-checking analysis method for 247 pesticide residues in sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum)

    • Mon, 11/22/2021 - 14:05
    • International Journal of Food Properties
    • A simultaneous analysis method using LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS was developed for improving the analysis accuracy of various pesticide residues. Samples spiked with 247 and 34 pesticide residues were analyzed by LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS, respectively. The method was verified by measuring sensitivity, linearity, selectivity, precision, and accuracy.

    • International Journal of Food Properties
    • ABSTRACT Oat predominately cultivated as forage crop and is not explored for its value-added bioactive moieties. This study was aimed to characterize five selected oat (Avena sativa L.) cultivars with respect to organic sugars, antioxidant activities, pesticide residues, mycotoxin and phenolic acids as measured HPLC.

  3. Pesticide residues in vegetables in four regions of Jilin Province

    • Mon, 07/06/2020 - 14:05
    • International Journal of Food Properties
    • A study of pesticide residues was investigated in vegetable samples to highlight the trend of drugs obtained from the Jilin Province, China. Total of 230 samples obtained from four regions over the period 2016–2017 were screened for 18 pesticides that were analyzed using gas chromatography with electron capture (GC-ECD). The results showed that 45 samples (19.6%) were positive including 17 samples (7.39%) exceeded the national maximum residue limit (MRL).
