Food Forensics

Overview

Nothing garners public attention like an alleged food poisoning case.

Whether it's a fast-food restaurant, a resort hotel or casino, or a major food supplier that's under suspicion, when the subject of food poisoning comes up, action is required. Our experts have conducted HACCP reviews and sanitation inspections and investigated numerous food contamination and spoliation claims to help restore trust in what could be a fragile business environment. Through the expertise of our toxicologists, we determine whether claims illnesses are possible based on the scientific data.

One also expects that can of tomato soup to taste just like the last one you bought. But off-spec constituents can change the game suddenly.  At Rimkus, we've investigated off-flavor or off-spec food products, including pet and animal feeds and exotic foodstuffs, allowing the affected parties to resolve disputes and claims so they can get back to business.
