$150K food safety grant to Trudeau Institute

SARANAC LAKE, N.Y. (AP) — The Trudeau Institute in the Adirondacks has received a $150,000 federal grant to help fight food poisoning.

The grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture targets research for a vaccine to stop Campylobacter (camp-ee-loh-bak-tur), a harmful bacteria commonly linked to raw milk and poultry.

The Press-Republican of Plattsburgh reports (http://bit.ly/1wMIfHj ) that U.S. Rep. Bill Owens said the project could lead scientists to a vaccine that would help farmers and ranchers manage the threat from the bacteria.
