Food Safety Testing

100% Accurate Food Safety Testing

100% Accurate Food Safety Testing For Dangerous Microbes, Done In Our Certified Lab

Turnaround Time is 10 business days from receipt of your samples.

Food safety tests are done to ensure your product is edible using microbiological analysis. Depending on the ingredients in your recipe, we’ll recommend which microbes to test for. Some of the most common microbes tested for are:

  • Staph. Aureus
  • Salmonella
  • Escherichia coli (E. coli)
  • Listeria
  • Mold

We do not test for pathogens or food that has been intentionally contaminated. Food safety tests are done to prevent food poisoning outbreaks and so the food needs to be tested under normal conditions.

To conduct this analysis you would ship a sample of your food product to us and we will perform the test. Please see below for more details on ‘How it Works.’

You  will receive a report which will indicate whether any of the 5 bacteria’s were detected.  Additional confirmation testing is available to confirm growing bacteria for $100.

Frequently Asked Questions

Get answers to your questions on pet food guaranteed analysis

Why is a food safety test important?

While cooking and proper preparation of food eliminates most bacteria and viruses, there are other ways in which contamination may occur, such as from improper handling or packaging. The food safety test tells you if the food is free of Salmonella, Listeria, and other common harmful microorganisms that may contaminate a food and make it unsafe to eat.

How is food safety testing different than a shelf life test?

The food safety test is a one-time test done on a single sample. In contrast, shelf life testing is performed on several samples at timed intervals.
