ST. PAUL, Minn. — 3M Food Safety has been awarded a contract from the Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA FSIS) for Campylobacter detection with the 3M Molecular Detection System. The award makes the 3M Molecular Detection System the primary method to be used by USDA FSIS for the detection of Campylobacter in poultry. 3M has begun working with USDA FSIS to initiate the transition process and the USDA FSIS will announce when the transition is complete for testing Campylobacter with the 3M system.
USDA FSIS previously named the 3M Molecular Detection System as the primary method for Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes testing for meat, poultry and egg products.
