The ultimate output of AECL's Salmonella Initiative will be a through-chain risk assessment that includes research-based knowledge to be used as the basis for management of each risk which will also identify knowledge gaps that can be filled through the AECL R&D program.
Through the Salmonella Initiative AECL has been collaborating with relevant through-chain stakeholders (producers, retailers, health departments, regulators, food service operators, chefs) to identify appropriate controls measures at various stages through chain.
