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.

    • Journal of Food Safety, EarlyView. Food processing techniques reduce pesticide residue accumulation in food components. The present study investigated the effectiveness of simple processing techniques, such as roasting, soaking, autoclaving, and storage conditions on 27 selected pesticides belongs to the class of organophosphates (OPs), organochlorines (OCPs), and pyrethroids (PPs) in pesticide fortified cottonseed.

    • Journal of Food Safety
    • 46% of raw and 14% of ready‐to‐eat vegetable samples from Arusha city were contaminated with pesticide residues from the groups of organophosphates pyrethroids and organochlorines. Washing of vegetables twice or more and changing the washing water after each use (p = .01) or peeling (p = .008) was significantly associated with a reduction of pesticide residues in them.
