USDA’s new initiative called the grand challenge: Salmonella

The USDA Agriculture Research Service (ARS) started a new Salmonella Grand Challenge initiative. The ARS-led Salmonella Grand Challenge team comprises 18 ARS scientists representing eight fields of expertise and six national program areas, working on 12 projects at eight ARS research laboratories nationwide. Research partners include five USDA agencies and 22 stakeholders that cross all commodities and scales of operation. The project goal is to integrate Salmonella research on where Salmonella causes the highest risk in meat and poultry products and, as a result, to develop better monitoring tools to prevent Salmonella in meat and poultry operations. The project goal is to reduce sick people by 25% by 2030. @
