The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) released an updated list of test kits that have been validated for detection of relevant foodborne pathogens. FSIS does not require the use of any particular test method, but the method chosen by an establishment should be validated for testing relevant foods by a recognized independent body, a U.S. regulatory body or an ISO method. The validated method should also be fit for the intended purpose and application, and performed under validated conditions by a laboratory that assures the quality of the analytical results.
