Grantee uncovers lack of Salmonella testing for squab, in apparent violation of federal law

For The Food Section, an online outlet that covers food and drink in the southern U.S., Hanna Raskin investigated potential Salmonella contamination on squab, a flightless pigeon that is consumed mostly by Egyptian and Chinese immigrants. With support from the Fund, Raskin found that microbiological testing is not being conducted on squab farmed in the U.S., despite a longstanding governmental directive requiring it.
