Food Safety

Foodborne illness is relatively common and not generally life threatening, but it can seriously compromise the health of young children or anyone with a suppressed or stressed immune system. Norovirus is the most common cause of foodborne illness; Salmonella is the most frequently reported cause of foodborne illness. Foodborne related allergic reactions can be very serious or life threatening. Physical contaminants such as chemical (lighter fluid, pesticides), physical (glass, wood), or microbial (virus, bacteria, parasite) also contribute to foodborne illness.

shipping hazmat
Shipping Hazardous Material

When hazardous materials are offered for transport by a commercial carrier like FedEX or UPS, the shipment becomes regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and/or international agencies (IATA, ICAO). To comply with shipping regulations, hazardous materials must be properly classified, packaged, documented, and handled by trained employees. Failure to meet these requirements may result in delays, loss of research samples, and potential regulatory fines.

REM can assist by either providing shipment services, or if necessary, training personnel on the proper shipping procedures for regulated hazardous materials. REM does not charge for shipment preparation or training services. However, the researcher is responsible for the cost of proper packaging materials, dry ice (if applicable), and shipping costs.
