S39 Application of Predictive Risk, Threat, and Vulnerability Tools for Food Safety and Defense

Monday, July 27, 2015: 1:30 PM-3:00 PM
B117 - B119 (Oregon Convention Center)
Primary Contact: Brian Hawkins
Organizers: Anthony Pavic and Brian Hawkins
Convenors: Anthony Pavic and Brian Hawkins
The theme of the proposed session is examples or case studies of applications of predictive risk, threat, or vulnerability tools for the purposes of food safety and defense.  Though there are a plethora of predictive models that address a wide array of topics from risk to microbial growth and decay to product vulnerability to potential human health consequences, the application of those tools to real world scenarios is relatively atypical. This session aims to illustrate how such tools can be applied to help answer the tough questions facing food industry today.
