Siamese Fighting Fish says: This Food Is Not Bad for You! Do Not Waste Millions of Dollars By Telling Everyone It is Bad for Them When It is Not!!

According to an OSU media release, Dr. Janine Trempy, professor of microbiology and associate dean of the OSU College of Science, has teamed up with this Siamese fighting fish to revolutionize food safety.

She has developed a new technology to detect illness-causing bacteria – an advance that could revolutionize the food industry, improving the actual protection to consumers while avoiding the costly waste and massive recalls of products that are suspected of bacterial contamination but are perfectly safe. Dr. Trempy’s research was just published in the journal Microbial Biotechnology.
