Report favors access to processing plant data
Date posted: December 1, 2011
Publicly posting enforcement and testing data corresponding to specific meat, poultry, and egg products’ processing plants on the Internet could have “substantial benefits,” including the potential to favorably impact public health, says a new report from the National Research Council. The report adds that the release of such data could contribute to increased transparency and yield valuable insights that go beyond the regulatory uses for which the data are collected.
The expert committee that produced the report was chaired by Dr. Lee-Ann Jaykus, professor of Food, Bioprocessing and Nutrition Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
