Could that omnipresent tool of high school chemistry labs—litmus paper, which indicates if a liquid solution is acidic or basic—be harnessed as perhaps the simplest assay yet for foodborne pathogens? Researchers were able to correlate levels of E. coli bacteria with pH values represented by the changing color of the litmus paper.
A scoop of raw dog or cat food may also come with a serving of pathogens, posing potential risk to both pets and their human caretakers. Recent research investigated samples of raw dog and cat foods, exotic animal food, and jerky-type treats for presence of food safety pathogens.
The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Tax Credit claim program isn’t solely concerned with R&D: Eligible SR&ED costs and claims may be initiated, supported, or documented in other operational areas, especially quality assurance and food safety.
