This news item from the Cornell Chronicle is about: An innovative computer program could be a big help for food safety professionals working to keep production facilities free of food-borne pathogens. Cornell scientists have developed a computer program, Environmental Monitoring With an Agent-Based Model of listeria (EnABLe), to simulate the most likely locations in a processing facility where the deadly food-borne pathogen listeria monocytogenes might be found. Food safety managers may then test those areas for the bacteria’s presence, adding an important tool to prevent food contamination and human exposure to the pathogen through tainted food.
