National Food Safety & Toxicology Center

MSU’s National Food Safety and Toxicology Center conducts research that increases the understanding of chemical and microbial hazards in foods, and uses this knowledge to develop a safer food supply, a well-founded public policy, and a greater public understanding of food safety issues. The Center’s expertise applies to every stage of the food system; from food, animal, and plant production, to processing and packaging, to retailing and food preparation in the home or institution.
