The end of the day has finally come and you breathe a sigh of relief and pack up your belongings to head home. As you're picking up your phone, you notice a text from your child asking what you are having for dinner. Panic rushes over you as you realize that you haven't bought anything for dinner and need to make a stop at the grocery store before heading home. As you rush into the store and look around, you notice a section over by the deli with pre-packaged meals. Everything that you need is inside. You can choose to search through the aisles going from one side of the store to other as you decide what you will make, or you can select a pre-packaged meal.

Bioethanol is an alcohol created through the fermentation of carbohydrates produced in sugar or starch crops such as corn, sugarcane, or sweet sorghum. In the United States, most of the bioethanol produced is made from corn; in Brazil, the world’s second largest bioethanol producer, the dominant feedstock is sugar cane. Although research is underway and a few plants have been built to create cellulosic ethanol by fermenting materials such as agricultural residue, algae, wood processing waste, yard and vegetative waste, food processing waste, etc., field corn is the feedstock used to create 98 percent of the bioethanol produced in the United States.1

Even when working  hard to operate in compliance with the strictest standards, U.S. F&B producers are forced to recall thousands of products each year, typically for one of three reasons: undeclared allergens (such as the presence of milk, wheat, peanuts or soy that don’t appear on the label), pathogens like E.coli, salmonella or listeria, or physical contamination.


All U.S. F&B processors are affected by increasingly stringent food safety standards. These standards
