One of the leading national food safety consumer groups, STOP Foodborne Illness, has joined the Food Laboratory Alliance, a coalition of organizations devoted to the safety of the nation’s food supply and the quality of food laboratory testing.

“We are proud to join with the Food Laboratory Alliance in advocating for food laboratory testing standards,” explains STOP Foodborne Illness CEO, Deirdre Schlunegger. “Many members of the STOP Board are food laboratory professionals who understand the testing environment and are passionate about it.  The Alliance is a natural fit for STOP and our mission of preventing harm from foodborne pathogens.”

“We are pleased to welcome STOP Foodborne Illness to the Alliance,” said Robin Stombler, President of Auburn Health Strategies, LLC and Director of the Food Laboratory Alliance.  “The Alliance represents hundreds of food laboratories, hundreds of thousands of food testing products and services, and millions of consumers through the work of its members.  STOP Foodborne Illness adds an important voice in support of the quality of food laboratory testing.”
