ASM Live 2011: Impact of Globalization on the U.S. Food Supply














As the United States continues to import increasingly more of its food from developing nations, we are putting ourselves at greater risk of foodborne disease as many of these countries do not have the same sanitary standards for production, especially in the case of seafood and fresh produce. Additionally, prudent use of antibiotics is not practiced in many countries supplying foods, such as seafood and produce, to the United States.
