Tyson safety lab to go 'high-tech'

Tyson Foods, Inc., has broken ground on a state-of-the-art food safety laboratory expansion that will more than double the size of the protein giant's existing facility.

The $5.2 million, 17,500-square-foot expansion will enable implementation of new "high-tech" procedures and expedite food safety and quality management. In addition, training capacity will more than double. New DNA-based technology, for example, will enable the microbiology department to differentiate microbial strains according to genetic composition.
