A&T at the North Carolina Research Campus: Finding new ways to keep healthy food healthy

Dr. Leonard Williams on foodborne illnesses:

“Pathogens cause a lot of deaths, sickness and hospitalization, which results in a tremendous economic burden with loss of work and doctor visits and on the food industry with recalls and lawsuits. It exponentially compounds itself to where it’s (foodborne illness) probably one of the most costly to treat. It is something we hope to help find a remedy for through the research in this center.”

From a video interview and news report at the website of the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis, home of the N.C. A&T Center for Excellence in Post-Harvest Technologies.
