Food safety testing signifies testing of food products to assure the absence of contaminants that are responsible for foodborne illness, toxicity or poisoning. Food safety testing is essential to prevent consumption of contaminated food that has been responsible for outbreaks of foodborne illnesses. Contamination of food can occur due to exposure to contaminated equipments or raw materials, contaminated water, improper handling, and inefficient treatment.

The regulations specify testing of food materials and food manufacturing processes at every stage, to prevent food contamination and outbreaks of foodborne poisoning. Implementation of these food safety regulations has been driving the food safety testing market.

This report explicitly describes the North American food safety testing market in terms of contaminants such as pathogens, toxins, pesticides, genetically modified organisms and other contaminants such as food allergens, chemical residues, etc. in three countries such as U.S., Canada and Mexico.
