Global Green Cites Research Finding Salmonella Detection Continues to Fail
Failure to accurately detect Salmonella may have significant public health consequences
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – August 5, 2014 – Global Green, Inc. (OTCBB:GOGC), a green bio-pharmaceutical company, cites recent research by the American Proficiency Institute (API) (http://www.foodpt.com/Reference/News/Salmonella%20Detection%20Rates%20Continue%20to%20Fail.pdf) reporting that “a study of 17,881 proficiency testing results from 1999 to 2013 found that laboratories continue to submit false positives and false negatives when testing for Salmonella.”
In May 2014, API reported that “Salmonella is the number one cause of death and hospitalization due to a food pathogen, yet a percentage of food laboratories fail to detect or rule out contamination of the common food pathogen. A study of 17,881 proficiency testing results from 1999 to 2013 found that laboratories continue to submit false positives and false negatives when testing for Salmonella.”
Salmonella is estimated to cause 1.2 million illnesses in the United States each year with approximately 23,000 hospitalizations and 450 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Failure of a laboratory to accurately detect Salmonella may have significant public health consequences.”
Conversely, if a laboratory falsely states a sample is contaminated, the economic losses to the food industry may be great.”
Global Green believes it is possible to eradicate Salmonella. Dr. Mehran Ghazvini, DC, NMD, Chairman and CEO of Global Green, Inc., stated, “A failure to accurately detect Salmonella could have far reaching implications. The importance of detection of this deadly disease cannot be overstated. But, if the disease was prevented, at the source, the positive effect on worldwide health and on the food industry, would be immeasurable. Salmogenics, our unique vaccine, helps reduce the presence of Salmonella in animals and prevents the dangerous effects of Salmonella in humans.”
Salmogenics™, Global Green’s patented Salmonella vaccine for poultry, is injected into the egg, before the chick is hatched, improving the immune system, health and welfare of the chicken by protecting it from Salmonella as it breaks out of the egg’s shell, cost-effectively providing a healthier source of protein for humans.
API is a private institute that supplies proficiency testing programs for food laboratories and clinical laboratories. The study was presented by API at the American Society for Microbiology, 114th General Meeting in Boston, MA, on May 19, 2014.
