I am a professional food microbiologist. I created this blog to help ordinary folk and food manufacturers understand food safety so that we can reduce the incidence of food mediated illness. I would like it to become a resource for teachers in schools. If readers send comments or questions, I'll try to incorporate them into future postings. Write to: FoodMicrobiologist.firstname.lastname@example.org I hope you find the site useful and perhaps even thought-provoking.
