The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a multi-year study to improve food safety by addressing knowledge gaps in order to advance prevention.

The FDA—in partnership with the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the University of California, Davis, Western Center for Food Safety and agricultural stakeholders in the Central Coast of California—is launching the study in response to a series of E. coli O157:H7 outbreaks in recent years linked to California’s lettuce production regions.
