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. Pesticide residues and dietary risk assessment in radishes in Shandong

    • Wed, 10/12/2022 - 04:00
    • Journal of Food Science
    • Journal of Food Science, EarlyView. Pesticide residues in radishes can induce serious health hazards, especially in children and toddlers. In order to assess potential health risk from pesticide residues in radishes, a total of 26 pesticides were evaluated by gas chromatography with mass spectrometry in 1690 samples, which were collected from the year 2016 to 2019 in Shandong Province of China.

  5. Pesticides (Hexachlorocyclohexane, Aldrin, and Malathion) Residues in Home‐Grown Eggs: Prevalence, Distribution, and Effect of Storage and Heat Treatments

    • Sat, 11/23/2019 - 03:18
    • Journal of Food Science
    • The abuse of pesticides in home gardens may lead to contamination of home‐grown eggs. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH), aldrin, and malathion pesticides residues in egg white and egg yolk of home‐grown eggs in Jordan; and the effect of refrigerated storage and heat treatment (boiling and frying) on residues level.

    • Sun, 09/22/2019 - 03:17
    • Journal of Food Science
    • An effective method for the determination of 49 pesticide residues and 17 mycotoxins in wine by a modified QuEChERS (quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged, and safe) method and ultrahigh‐performance liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry was developed. The target compounds were extracted with 1% (v/v) formic acid–acetonitrile, and no cleanup steps were required.

    • Sun, 09/22/2019 - 03:17
    • Journal of Food Science
    • Diuron is a urea herbicide that is frequently detected in surface water, groundwater, and marine waters. However, there are few methods or guidelines reported on ensuring the quality of sugarcane and soil. In this study, a method was developed for detecting diuron to ensure the quality and safety of food and sugar.

  14. The Fate of Organophosphorus Pesticides during Camellia Oil Production

    • Wed, 07/01/2015 - 01:25
    • Journal of Food Science
    • The purpose of this study was to investigate the fate of organophosphorus pesticidesOPs) during camellia oil production process, from camellia fruit to the final oil product. The results showed that the OPs were mainly distributed in the peel of camellia fruit, basically above 40% after the pesticide application of 7 d (P < 0.05). A small amount of OPs could enter into the seed and convert to crude camellia oil, with the concentration of 19.5 to 548.2 mg/L.

  15. Standing Gold Nanorod Arrays as Reproducible SERS Substrates for Measurement of Pesticides in Apple Juice and Vegetables

    • Fri, 01/30/2015 - 00:08
    • Journal of Food Science
    • There is an increasing interest in recent years in using novel nanomaterials as cost-effectivesensitive, and reproducible substrate for surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) applications. In this study, a novel SERS substrate was developed by assembling gold nanorods into standing arrays on a gold-coated silicon slide. The standing nanorod arrays were closely packed on the gold film, generating strong electromagnetic field and uniformly distributed SERS “hot-spots” on the array surface.
