Duration: 7 minutes, 18 seconds.

Traditional Food Production has been described as the "ship and pray" model due to the grab sampling of the finished product with culture testing.
The "Test and Release” mode of agricultural operations requires the surveillance of the entire process during several steps: irrigation water, pre-harvest, post harvest, wash water cycle, and finished products.  Should the surveillance program indicate an "alert" to the presence of a bacterial pathogen, then the lot should be withheld from the market.  A Test and Release” Surveillance program employs PCR tests to validate production with Statistical Process Control (SPC). This program allows for Periodic Testing of Randomized samples against established upper control limits.
